For making Momos
Make 5 – 6 balls out of the prepared dough. Take one ball out of it, roll it to a big circle and cut small circles out of it. Take one circle and add little prepared chicken filling at the center.
Make pleats from one side. Wet the edge of the other half of the circle and seal it. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
Place these in a hot steamer without touching each other and steam it in batches for about 20 minutes. Serve hot with any sauce of your choice.
