Vegetable Momos

These South Asian dumplings are packed with flavor, thanks to a filling of chicken, fresh ginger, garlic and spicy white pepper.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon canola/vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Warm water
  • 1 cup minced chicken
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • 1/2 tablespoon finely grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped green onions
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped coriander (cilantro)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Hot chili sauce and soy sauce, to serve alongside

Steps

  1. In a bowl, mix together flour, oil and salt. Slowly pour in water and continue mixing until a soft but firm dough forms. Allow to rest for 30 minutes.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together remaining ingredients. Set in fridge for 20 minutes for mixture to firm up.
  3. To assemble, pinch off small pieces of dough and roll into circles approximately 3 inches in diameter. Place a tablespoon of the chicken filling in the center of the dough. Pull up the sides of the dough towards the middle, and fold to create a pleated design.
  4. Steam in a steamer for 10 minutes and serve with hot chili sauce and soy sauce. Enjoy!
