Steamed Chicken Dim sum/ Momos

Dim Sum refers to a style of Cantonese food prepared as small bite sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets. It can be either steamed or fried. Something that is usually made with plain flour, but here I have used whole wheat flour, to be on a healthier side.The difference which I noticed was that the wheat ones tend to be a little less soft when compared to the plain flour ones.
For the pastry
1 cup wheat flour/maida (I used wheat flour)
Water as required
Salt as required
1 tablespoon oil
For the filling
1 cup chicken mince
 2 teaspoon oyster sauce
2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon chopped coriander
1"ginger chopped
1 tablespoon chopped spring onion
1/2 teaspoon pepper powder
1  teaspoon sugar
Salt as required

  • Mix flour,salt and oil in a bowl. 
  • Add water and make a smooth dough by kneading well.
  • Cover the dough with a cling film and allow  it to rest for 15 minutes.
  • In a seperate bowl mix all the ingredients for filling and keep aside.
  • Make small balls out of the dough and roll out into small circles by dusting flour in between.
  • Place 1 heaped teaspoon of chicken mix  in the middle and spread  it.
  • Pull and fold the sides over the filling pinching the edges together to seal.
  • Place the momos in a steamer and steam for 10-12 minutes.
  • Serve hot with the sauce you like the most.
