Its decorated chicken dumplin. In Bengal we call it Chicken Kodom phool. These dumplings are shaped like flowers named â€œKodom Phulâ€ , which primarily grows in Tropical Region in India primarily Eastern and southern Part. The chicken dumplings look similar to the Kodom Phul. I have made few yellow and red coloured chicken dumplings using turmeric and red chili powder (instead of using food colour)to look closed to the original flower. The dumplings are cooked in steam with minimum fat so its healthy recipe. Key ingredients are chicken and rice. To make it healthier, it can be cooked using brown rice too. But it will take more time than usual time taken for basmati rice. Its best to cook with a rice which cooks fast.

Minced chicken 1 cup
Finely chopped onion- 2 tblspn
Finely chopped green chili- 1-2 tspn
Grated or powdered- garlic- 1 tspn
Crushed black or white pepper- 1 tspn
Rice basmati for long petals/brown/short grain flavoured- Â½ cup
Turmeric and Red chili powder - 14th tspn each for colour(optional)
Olive/white oil- 1 tblspn
Salt to taste
Wash and soak the rice for at least 1 hr. Brown rice takes much time to cook so it will take much soaking. Best result is with aromatic basmati rice. Strain the rice in a muslin so that it becomes dry. Pat the rice with muslin or kitchen towel.
If you want coloured balls the divide the dry rice. Add turmeric or chili powder to the rice. These will look similar to the Kodom Flower. Rest you leave original colour.
Put the minced chicken in a bowl. Add onion, green chili, garlic, pepper, salt and 1 tspn oil. Combine all. Use your fingers to mix it well. Add egg and combine again. Refrigerate for at least 15 mins to ½ hr.
Make small balls out of the minced meat mix. Now quote the dumplings with rice nicely all over.
In a steamer or momo maker or in a pressure cooker you can cook the dumplings.
Brush the steamer bowl with little oil. Arrange the balls in the steamer keeping at least 1Ã¢â¬Â distance between. Cook it in steamer at least 20 mins. Or till the rice is cooked.
You may cook these in pressure cooker without putting weight on the lid just like idli making in medium flame.
