Servings 4 serving


For the momo wrapper

  • 1 cup all purpose flour / maida
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • salt and water warm to make a stiff dough

For the chicken filling

  • 1 cup chicken minced
  • 2 onions finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder (we used white )
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • to taste salt
  • cabbage Note: To make a veg filling, replace mince with shredded chicken with cabbage

For the chutney

  • 1/2 cup corainder leaves
  • 3 - 4 green chillies
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp soya sauce

For the soup

  • 200 gms chicken soup bones
  • 2 cups water
  • handful coriander leaves
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • to taste salt


  • In a bowl mix all the ingredients of the chicken for the filling. Keep aside to rest till you make your dough.
  • Knead the maida, baking powder and salt together into a stiff dough. It has to be tougher than roti dough. Cover and keep aside for 30 minutes.
  • Now make small balls of the dough and roll into very thin 4-5 inch rounds.
  • Take each round piece and place some filling in the center, bring the edges together and begin to seal in a twist and fold manner. With each sealing put the two ends together and fold them moving to the end of the round this way.
  • Steam in a steamer for about 10 minutes and serve hot with sauce and soup.
