Chicken Momos



A chicken momo is a type of dumpling popular in the Himalayan region mainly Tibet. A mixture of ground chicken, onion, garlic, ginger, cilantro, and spices is filled in a thin rolled dough circle and formed into a dumpling. The dumplings are then steamed until cooked through. They are often served with a dipping sauce made from tomato, garlic, and chilies.
