Momos were first introduced in Nepal during the 14th century. When a Nepalese princess married a Tibetan King, momos were brought to Japanese cuisine and spread to other countries. Soon enough as the years went by, restaurants and five-star eateries added it to their menus. Today, it's quite a common sight to find momos being sold as street food by hawkers and fast food kiosks. You'll even find mo ... mo stores inside malls and literally in every fast food joint's menu since they're so popular. Chicken Schezwan momos are these delicious dumplings stuffed with juicy chicken chunks and topped with spicy hot Schezwan sauce. Every momo is a unique creation since the dumpling's filling dictates the taste. If you'd like a meatier texture to the filling, you can use lamb or beef instead of chicken. Sauteed vegetables are mixed with the meat to give these dumplings a pleasant flavouring. If you'd like to learn how to make Chicken Schezwan momos at home, be sure to watch our Chicken Schezwan momos video online.
