Momos is a fast food of Nepal, Tibet origin. This is a very famous easy to make fast food of Nepal, Tibet, Sikkim, Bhutan etc. north east Asian Country. Those are similar to the Chinese, Korean, Japanese steamed dumplings. This Momo has become famous in North eastern India. At that time momos were made by filling plain pork meats. But nowadays the momos are made with chicken, prawn even vegetable. Momos are in many different types in India, like steamed, fried, pan fried with sauce, in sizzlers', even in soups. But this momos are famous in North side of India. But in recent time, its popularity has reached in South India also. Almost in every chinese food stalls you can get momo, and in fine dines, they have many varieties of the same. When me & my husband were dating at that time, momo was our evening snacks in most of the days. My maternal house is in Salt lake Kolkata and my husband's office was in sector 5. So we used to walk through the streets of Saltlake sector 5 to Korunamoyee, where from he used to take cab to Howrah. And 1 stall was there, actually it's still there, 'Bapi Dar Momor Dokan', we used to eat momos from that particular stall, and it was only 10 rs for 1 plate chicken momos, with sauce & soup. And 3 momos used to be on per plate. And believe me, the momos are damn tasty with full of meat. I never had so tasty momos in this price. If you ever visit Kolkata, and a momos lover, then you must not miss this place.

Today I'm going to share the Steamed Chicken Momos recipe with my followers. This is one of my favorite evening snacks. I was thinking of making these momos for long days. When I was in USA I usually made them in my bamboo steamer. But I could not bring it with me in India. But when Tupperware offered me their newly introduced product Steam It, I was very happy, and from that day I was planning to make momos for their promotional post. So today I made "Steamed Chicken Momos" and sharing the recipe with you.
