Chicken Momos With Tomato Chilli Garlic Sauce...!!!

Author: Siddhi Shirsat // Category: , ,

"Momos" or "Momochas" is a type of dumpling which is  native to himalayas of Tibet., north-eastern part of India and also some parts of China.This dumplings are either steamed or even deep fried..The stuffing can consists of meat or vegetables.I had tasted this delicacy for the first time in Pune in a North-Eastern restaurant and had just loved it.Its very famous in some parts of pune due to the north-eastern population.Earlier i had posted a vegetarian version of momos...Mushroom can check them.Today i am posting chicken momos which i had made few days back and they had tasted very good.I had steamed them as i did not want to increase my calorie intake by having deep fried items...You can even deep fry them to increase its taste instead of steaming.


For Outer Coating:
  • 200 grams all purpose flour( maida)
  • salt
  • oil
For The Stuffing:
  • 250 grams boneless chicken
  • 1-2 table spoons of ginger-garlic paste
  • 2 onions finely chopped
  • 2 tea spoon soya sauce
  • 1 tea spoon chilli sauce
  • 1-2 tea spoons of red chilli powder
  • 1 seasoning masala cube
  • 2 table spoons of chopped coriander leaves
  • salt
  • oil
For Tomato Chilli Garlic Sauce:
  • 2 tomatoes dry roasted
  • 4-5 red chillis dry roasted
  • 1/2 tea spoon brown sugar
  • 1 tea spoon soya sauce
  • 4-5 chopped garlic cloves
  • salt

Take maida in a  bowl and add salt and little oil and kned it into a soft dough using water.Keep it aside.Take the chicken pieces and apply ginger-garlic paste to them and cook them till they are almost done.Cool them and shred them into small pieces.

Heat a pan and add little oil.Then add the chopped onion and saute till it turns light brown.Then add the shredded cooked chicken and mix.Add soya sauce and chilli sauce and stir for 1-2 mins.Then add chilli powder and seasoning masala and mix well.Add salt and stir. Cook for 1-2 mins.Add coriander leaves and remove from flame and cool.

Roll out  small thin rotis from the kneded dough, they should be of small size diamter of each should be approx  4-5 inches.Put  2 teaspoon of stuffing on the center of each rolled roti and close it giving proper folds.You can even give them the shape of semi circle.Try to give any shape you desire but seal it properly so that the stuffing does not come out.

Heat a steamer with water.Make a bed of  cabbage leaves on the steamer plate and on them keep the prepared dumplings.Because of cabbage leaves the momos wont stick to the plate.Steam this dumplings for 15 mins.Momos are ready.

Now for the sauce grind roasted tomatoes and red chillis till they form a fine paste using little water.Heat little oil in a wok.Saute chopped garlic for 2 mins then add the tomato and chilli paste to it and little water.Let the mixture boil.Then add brown sugar, salt and soya sauce and cook for 2 mins.Sauce is ready.

Serve hot chicken momos with tomato chilli garlic sauce.

NOTE: My vegetarians friends can substitue chicken stuffing with soem vegetable stuffing and can enjoy them.

Preparation Time: 30 mins

I am fowarding  this momos to jagrutis event Joyful Eating Whilst Traveling.Well i had not gone to Pune for a tour but was staying there for 10 months and had tasted this momos first time there.As one condition for the participation of event is posting a pic of the place where you had tasted this dish, i just have few pics of Pune, so i am posting a snap of the famous Dagdushet Halwai Ganesh Temple.It is the place which i have visited maximum times during my stay there,its a very beautiful and peaceful temple.I idol of lord ganesh in it is very very beautiful.
