Momos are the famous fast food Himalayan origins. It’s a traditional delicacy in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim and Northeast India.Momo(dumpling) are made with a simple flour-and-water dough—white flour is generally preferred ,it can be either steamed or fry.You can do Chicken/Meat or Vegeatable stuffing in it. I tried chicken as my husband is fond of chicken and i gave little desi tadka to it hence fried it.

Directions | How to make Chicken momos
In a frying pan add 1 tsp of oil,add chicken mince in it and saute it for 5 minutes,add all the remaining ingredients to it.
Let it cook for around 5-7 mins , please do not use any water as we need the filling to be completely dry to stuff.
Once cooked keep it aside.
Knead the refined flour, baking powder and salt together into firm dough. Cover and keep aside for 30 minutes.
Roll the dough into very thin 4-5 inch rounds.
Take each round piece and place some prepared filling in the center.
Bring the edges together and twist to seal it.
Fry it for about 10 minutes and serve hot with tomato-garlic sauce.
You can also steam the momos in steamer or 10 mins for healthy reasons.
Also can used shredded carrots/cabbage for stuffing.
