Chicken Momo

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.

  Hindus who maintain religious fasts especially once a week or during special festive seasons   tend to prepare Sabudana/Sago/Tapioca pearls in this form.

It is a delicious snack with a great texture. It is crunchy on the outside and soft inside.

This can satisfy just about anybody, even those on a gluten-free diet.

Prep time:20 mins and 6-7 hours soaking Sabudana/Sago

Cooking time: 20 mins

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

2 Cup Sabudana/Sago

3 green chillies, chopped

1 Cup roasted peanuts (remove the skins and grind into powder)

1 cup boiled and mashed potatoes

2 tbsp chopped coriander/dhania (optional)

1/2 tbsp lemon juice

¼- ½ Cup oil to fry

Kadai or non-stick pan

salt to taste

Direction || How to prepare Sabudana Vada

Wash the sabudana. Drain and keep aside for about 6-7 hours.

After soaking, the sabudana will have increased in volume, by about 2 times. Set aside.

Mix the sabudana along with all the other ingredients and knead lightly to form a soft dough.

Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions. Shape each portion into a round and flatten slightly.

Deep-fry the vadas in hot oil until they are golden brown in colour and drain on absorbent paper.

Sabudana vada should be crunchy on the outside and soft inside.

Serve hot with green chutney or Dahi.

Tip

The frying oil needs to be sufficiently hot, or else the Vadas will turn out greasy and may break into pieces while cooking.
