Chicken Momos

ashu’s Steamed Chicken Momos

Chicken Momo is a dumpling which is one of my favorite and hence a frequently made food in my kitchen. I make it using refined flour and boiled chicken that is seasoned with simple seasonings. I have already shared a couple other recipes of momos, but the chicken momos was not yet posted.



Refined Flour: 250 gm

Boiled Chicken: 250 gm

Green Coriander: 2 Tbsp

Salt: To taste

Pepper: For Seasoning as per taste

Water: 1 glass (as needed)


Boil/Steam the chicken (I used 1 chicken breast) in a pressure cooker or rice cooker for a single vessel or 15 min.

Take a bowl and make a medium soft dough of the refined flour to which a pinch of salt is added, and keep the bowl covered.

Shred the boiled chicken, add salt and pepper as per taste and the chopped green coriander. This will be our Momos filling.

Divide the dough into small balls and roll out thin circular puris. Spoon the chicken filling  on the puri, and then  bring together and close all the ends giving a twist before sealing at the top. I prefer to remove the excess dough at the top end.

We can give any shape to the dumplings, but I prefer the one seen in the pictures. The more one practices shaping and making the momos, the better the shape 🙂 . I like to make smaller shaped momos, easier to eat in a single or two bites. Also note, the thinner the outer coat, it tastes better, my personal preference here.

Brush the steamer basket with oil before putting the momos for steaming, this prevents them from sticking to one another or to the basket, and we can easily remove them without the filling falling over from torn momos.

Steam the momos for 10 minutes, until the flour cover becomes shiny.

Serve them hot with a dip of choice, I have served with the parsley pesto that was handy in my fridge. Click for the Parsley Pesto recipe here.  It tastes best with the spicy red chutney made of tomato and ginger. You can click here for this recipe.
