Chicken Momos is a popular street food in India but its roots are from Tibet and Bhutan. This dish is also very similar to dumplings from China. And also believed to have spread from China through caravan routes connecting the Central Asian steppe to both East and West.

Momos are made by steam cooking chicken stuffing wrapped in wheat or all-purpose flour dough. In this recipe, I have used all-purpose flour/ maida but for a healthier choice, you can switch to wheat flour.

There are many variations to momos like schezwan momos, fried momos, and veg momos. But traditional momos are plain and steam cooked.

Momos are usually served with the popular red momos chutney and white sauce.
