  • Gyoza/Won Ton wrappers
  • 500 g chicken breast minced
  • 2 banana shallots finely diced
  • 2 spring onions finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes skinned and finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 inch piece of ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 small bunch of coriander finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter softened
  • 2 red chillies finely diced
  • salt & Pepper
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  1. Add all of the ingredients (apart from the wrappers) into a mixing bowl and using your hands blend the ingredients together very well until completely incorporated.
  2. Place your wrapper onto a kitchen surface and wet the outside edge with water
  3. Put a teaspoon of the chicken mix into the centre of the wrapper and then bring the sides together to seal the Momo
  4. Pinch the edges into a pleated pattern or crimp them (I recommend watching a video on how to do this)
  5. Continue wrapping the Momos until you have as many as you need. The mixture makes lots of Momos so I did freeze half of the mixture to use at a later date. You can also freeze the wrappers.
  6. Steam the Momos in a bamboo steamer for between 8 to 10 minutes
  7. Serve immediately with a spicy dipping sauce.
