For the momos dough:

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
For the filling

- To make the momo dough, combine the flour, salt, and warm water in a bowl. Mix until combined. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes, until it is smooth and elastic. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, make the filling. Heat the vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion, cabbage, mushrooms, chicken, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
