Chicken Momos

-My Chefs from Nepal always makes these for us when ever we crave them !

Momo are typical South Asian dumpling !

They are a common street snack to Tibet, Sikkim (India), Bhutan and Nepal.

It is similar to Chinese dim sum , Japanese gyoza , pot sticker and Korean mandu.

This dish became gradually very popular in parts of India with the incoming of our Nepalese & Tibetan visitors , who came in for business , work and various political reasons & have happily started their business of Momos all over , be it north or the south ...

Momos are generally made with minced meat but as the dish moved to different places, people have adapted & started making fillings to their liking such as chicken, prawn, vegetables, paneer, tofu ....

Here I am sharing the recipe for the popular by choice Chicken Momos .

The stuffing is made is meat & spices , herbs finely minced to make a smooth filling
