Momo recipe involves steaming process thats why this dish is a healthy form of snacking and are comparatively lighter because of very small amount of oil used.
200 gm boneless chicken,
1/2 tsp crushed black pepper,
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste,
1 medium sized onion ( finely chopped)
fresh coriander leaves(chopped),
1/4th cup of spring onion green portion (chopped),
2 cups all purpose flour ( maida )
1) Take maida in a bowl. Mix 2 tbsp of oil and a pinch of salt in it. Knead maida into a soft dough with some water. Keep the dough covered with a damp cloth for 20 minutes.
2) Put boneless chicken in a blender jar. Blend it to make chicken keema. Take this keema into a bowl. Add spring onion (green part), coriander leaves, black pepper, ginger-garlic paste, salt, 1 tsp oil, chopped onion. Mix it well.
3) Cut the dough into small pieces. Make small, thin rotis with the pieces to prepare momo sheets. Take a roti and put some chicken mixture in the centre of it. Pinch the roti edges to start gathering pleats. Bring all edges together to the centre, while making pleats. Pinch and twist the pleats to ensure the absolute closure of the stuffed dumpling.
Momos are now ready to cook.
4) Heat up a steamer, oil the steamer rack well to prevent dumplings from sticking. Arrange uncooked momos in the steamer. Close the lid, and allow steaming about 15 min.
Chicken momo is ready. Serve it hot with cutney. If you want you can fry it as well to make fry momo.
