Chicken Momos are absolutely delicious snacks filled with flavor packed chicken filling.
Many people complained that their momos are not as juicy as the restaurant/ street vendors serves momos. In this video I've shown you how to make juicy and succulent momos in less time without momo maker. Enjoy..


For dough
Refined flour 400 Gram
Salt To Taste
Oil 1 Teaspoon
Sugar 1 Teaspoon
For the filling
Pepper 1 Teaspoon
Minced chicken 300 Gram
Soy sauce 2 Tablespoon
Vinegar 1 Teaspoon
Onion 1 Large , chopped
Chopped cilantro 2 Tablespoon
Crushed ginger 1 Teaspoon
Salt To Taste



For dough

Take refined flour in a large vessel. Add oil and water. Knead it into a semi-stiff form (neither too soft nor too hard).

Cover with a damp cloth and leave for 30 minutes.

For filling

Add chopped onion, cilantro, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper, sugar, soya sauce and vinegar. Mix well.


Take small portions of the dough and make tiny balls. Take one ball at a time and roll into 5-inch diameter rounds, thicker in the center and thinner around the edge.

Place about 1 tablespoon of the filling in the center.

Now press the wrapper into half at the center and gently press the edges. Join the two end of the wrapper slightly overlapping, press to stick.

Take a large saucepan, half filled with water. Drizzle oil over a colander and place it inside the vessel.

Cover with lid and let it steam for a while.

then place the momos on the colander, close the lid and allow them to cook for 12-15 minutes.


Serve hot and spicy momo sauce.
