I still remember the first day i tasted this wonderful food " momo" when we were in Nagaland. Its a very common street food in there, which has the most adorable shape and taste. Now here i present to you all my own momo.


2 cups of all purpose flour (maida)
1 tbsp oil
salt to taste

For the filling:

1 cup of chicken, boiled and minced
1 inch lenght ginger
3-4 green chillies
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt to taste


Mix the flour, oil and salt in a bowl.
Knead it into a soft dough by adding water.
Crush the green chillies and ginger into a coarse form.
Mix the minced chicken with the paste , also adding lemon juice and salt.
Make small balls out of the dough.
Roll it into small rounds and add the filling. (while making rounds out of the dough, be sure that you use oil and not the flour)
Fold it into balls or of desired shape as shown in the picture.
Steam it for about 20 -30 mins in a idli cooker, or any kind of steamer.
You can serve it with green chutney.....happy meal!!!
