Chicken Momos with Soup and Momo Chutney

Momo is one of my and my daughter’s favourite… and I think many of us likes momos too… being rainy season don’t want to risk our stomachs…  eating out… here is my way of making momos at home… savouring them with hot piping soup and spicy momo chutney… all to go with the season.. 

This is a special combination we get on the streets of Kolkata at many places … 

Here I have used 50 percent wheat flour and rest refined flour… I have added veggies to the chicken to make it more healthier… Oil is almost nil… we can replace the chicken with pork or prawns.. along with the veggies… 

For the Momo Chutney 


2 Big Tomatoes cut into big pieces 

6 Kashmiri Chillies cut into pieces 

10 Garlic cloves 

1 small piece of Ginger 

Few stems of Coriander leaves chopped 

1 tbsp Raw Peanuts 

1 tbsp Sesame seeds roasted 

1/2 tsp Pepper powder 

Salt to taste 

1/2 tsp Sugar 

1 tbsp Vinegar 

2 tbsp light Soy sauce 


Take a pot, add the tomatoes, Kashmiri Chillies and peanuts, add 3/4 cup of water. Boil the ingredients on a medium flame for 5 minutes. Switch off the flame and add garlic and ginger, cover and let it cool down. Once in room temperature, add the ingredients in the grinder and add salt, sugar, pepper powder, vinegar, soy sauce, coriander stems and sesame seeds, grind all the ingredients well, add water as desired to get the runny consistency of the cutney. Once done keep it aside, can be kept in the fridge for a week. 

To make the outer covering of the Momos 


1 cup of Wheat flour 

1/2 cup of Refined Flour 

Salt to taste 

Luke Warm water 


Mix the wheat flour, refined flour and salt together, add little water at a time and knead a semi hard dough. Cover and rest the dough for an hour.. 

To make the stuffing and soup for the Momos.. 


Take 2 Cabbage leaves cut them into pieces 

1 small Carrot cut into pieces 

1 small piece of Onion cut into pieces 

2 Green Chillies 

10 Garlic cloves for Momos 

6 Garlic cloves chopped for Soup

1 small piece of Ginger 

1 Stem of Spring Onion chopped 

1 stem of Celery chopped 

5 to 6 Boneless Chicken pieces 

1/4 tsp Pepper powder 

1 tbsp Soy Sauce 

1 tsp Red Chilli sauce 

Salt to taste 

1/2 tsp Chicken seasoning powder for Momos 

1 tsp Chicken Seasoning powder for Soup 

1 tsp of Wheat flour slurry 

1 tsp Oil 

1 tbsp Corn flour 


Take a food chopper, add the cabbage, carrot, green chillies, garlic, ginger and spring onion. Finely chop all the vegetables, remove the chopped vegetables from the chopper, keep one tbsp of the chopped vegetables aside, now squeeze all the water out from the rest of the chopped vegetables. Don’t throw the water extracted from the vegetables. Now put the dry chopped vegetables back into the chopper, add chicken pieces, salt, pepper powder, soy sauce, chilli sauce, chicken seasoning powder and corn flour, blend all the ingredients together well until the ingredients are well combined and forms a soft dough, remove and keep the stuffing in the fridge for 30 minutes. Take a steamer, add 3 cups of water, chopped vegetables, celery, garlic, water extracted from the chopped vegetables used in momo stuffing, salt to taste and chicken seasoning powder and the slurry. Stir well. This soup will cook along while we will steam the momos… 

Let’s make the Momos 

Take a dough and knead well, take a portion from the dough, roll the dough into a thin round disc, take a round cutter, and cut medium or small size disc from the big disc, place the disc on the plate, make a batch of 12 disc at a time, take the stuffing and mix well, take a disc, take a small portion of the stuffing, and place the stuffing in between the disc, spread the stuffing a bit, then start covering the edges of the disc… giving the momos a shape you desire, repeat the process and make all the momos… grease the steamer plate, place all the momos on the plate, cover the steamer and steam the momos for 15 minutes. While the momos are cooking, we can prepare the second batch of momos. Prepare both the batches of momos then serve. Once the momos are ready serve the momos with hot piping soup and spicy momo chutney.
