This is a favourite recipe in our house that is actually the husband’s recipe. He makes it so well that it is better than what I’ve had outside. It is actually pretty simple to prepare so let’s dive straight into it.
For the filling:
1/2 Kg chicken mince boiled
1 capsicum finely chopped
2-3 green chillies finely chopped
1 large onion finely chopped
2 inch piece ginger finely chopped
salt to taste
For the outer shell:
1/2 Kg maida/processed flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. oil
Water to knead into a dough
Recipe: Mix maida/processed flour with salt, oil and water. Knead the maida dough and set aside. Since the chicken mince is cooked, add all the chopped ingredients and salt and mix well. Your filling is ready now. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. It should not be wet. Now roll out the dough into large circular disks/chapatis. Cut each such round into 4 equal parts. Stuff each part/pocket with adequate filling and seal it by pinching the ends together to form a pouch in any shape that you like. Make all the pouches/momos.
Steam them in a steamer for about 10 minutes. Your momos are ready to serve. Serve with any hot dipping sauce or chutney of your choice. Make for a really tasty snack/appetizer. Enjoy!
