Chicken Momo

Momo, is a famous dish in Nepal, Tibet and Eastern part of India however it’s slowly becoming a widespread fast food around the world. Momo, a dumpling which is steam cooked with variety of filling in it. Originally Momo was made with minced meat as filling however now there are varieties of filling which is used to make momo like mix veg, paneer, tofu or mixture of these ingredients. I have posted a veg momo recipe on my blog and this recipe is specifically for chicken based filling along with supplement ingredients. The momo dough is made using all purpose flour & fine semolina ( sooji) so generally it is white in color. I have also experimented a bit using spinach puree and it gave a beautiful green color and retaining the great taste of momo.
