Dim Sum, or delicate, hot, and succulent chicken momos, are the simplest meal you can cook from scratch. Heated and steamy momos filled with sautéed chicken and a range of veggies, seasoned with soy sauce and pepper, are a tasty treat any time of day, whether it’s a frigid winter afternoon or an evening with a shower of rain. But what if you don’t have a machine with which to steam the momos?
Here is how you can make momos without steamer
1. 2 cups flour (all-purpose)
2. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3. 1 cup minced chicken
4. 1 standard size onion, roughly chopped
5. 1/4 teaspoon powdered black pepper
6. 1/2 tablespoons garlic paste
7. 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
8. 1/4 tsp. vinegar
9. 1 tablespoon oil (processed)
1. Add some chopped chicken, onions, garlic chutney, soy sauce, vinegar, salt, and black pepper powder to a mixing dish.
2. Place all-purpose flour in a mixing dish. Combine the salt, refined oil, and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Knead the dough until it becomes a solid consistency, then wrap it with a damp towel and set it aside for at least 20-25 min.
3. Separate the towel from the dough and mix it again. Make little balls of dough and spread them out.
4. Put the filling in the middle of rolled dough in a circle. You can form the momos however you want. It can take the form of a folded bag or a half-moon shape. Make sure they’re properly sealed.
5. Choose a container with a deep bottom. Put 3 huge balls of crumpled aluminum foil on the table. After that, take a ceramic dish and brush some oil on it before placing it over the aluminum foil balls. Ensure the dish is on a flat surface. Fill the pot halfway with water and bring to a simmer. Then reduce the heat to low and let the water boil. Put the momos in a way that they don’t overpopulate. Allow for 15-30 min of steaming time after covering with a top.
