How to make Green Momo Dumpling with Soup (Jhol Momo)!

Hello, all my dear friends!

Today I am writing a recipe about green colored dumpling with soup which is good for this cold cold winter. Its very easy to prepare. We can make dumplings of different colors by using various vegetables. I am using spinach leaf here to give nice green color to my dumplings.

Ingredients for green colored dumpling!

For dough

  • Flour 4 cups
  • Spinach leaf 2 bunch
  • Whole egg 2 pieces
  • Salt 1 pinch
  • Sunflower oil 1 tablespoon

For filling mixture

  • Chicken minced  500gm
  • Fine chopped 3 whole onion
  • Garlic ginger paste 2 tablespoon
  • Salt to taste
  • Momo masala 1 tablespoon

For dumpling soup 

  • Ginger fine chopped
  • Garlic fine chopped
  • Butter or oil 200ml
  • White flour 2 tablespoon
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable stock or chicken stock 2 liter
  • Mix dried herbs(basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano etc)


Choose only leaves of the spinach and wash thoroughly. Blanch the spinach leaves for 1 minute in salted water and then blend well in blender to get a green paste. Knead dough with white flour, green spinach paste, salt, oil and egg.  Wrap this dough in clingfilm paper or plastic and keep aside.


Now let’s prepare filling mixture for the inside of dumpling. I bought chicken minced meat in market, but if you prefer you can make minced meat at home. Let’s add this chicken minced meat in a bowl and add fine chopped onion, ginger garlic paste, salt and momo masala. Mix well. Our filling is ready.


Now take dough and cut small pieces and make round roll as illustrated in the pictures below:


Make dumpling shape as you like. Add the mixture inside the wrapper and prepare your dumpling. Here is my last post how to make chicken momo where I give instruction about making dumplings.



Now let’s prepare the soup. First place a deep stock pot in medium heat. Add butter or oil. When the oil heats up, add ginger and saute for a few minutes. Then add garlic. When the ginger and garlic turn light brown, add white flour and fry in low heat for 2 minutes. Then add vegetable or chicken stock and mixed herbs. We can find mixed herb bottle in stores. Let it boil. When the soup boils, add dumpling. Boil the dumpling for 15 minute for it to cook properly.



Now we are ready to enjoy green colored dumpling in this winter. We can even make the soup green using this method. At the last step of this recipe, add spinach paste and boil for 1 more minute. You will get green soup.


We are enjoying green dumpling with soup.
