Once I arrived to Nepal, the smell of Momo & Masala Tea is waving to me. I just can’t wait to have many Momo here.
What is Momo?
It is stuffed dumplings, ingredients like meat, vegetables or cheese fillings.
This little dumpling called “Momo” is very popular in India and Nepal. You can easily find any restaurants or café served Momo in Kathmandu and Pokhara. Originated from Tibet and its neighborhood China, it also looks like Chinese dumplings (“Jiao Zi”). When Tibetan travels across Himalayan for trading and political escapes, they brings along the traditional recipe of dumplings making. Delicious Momo hence transferred from Tibet to Nepal, India, Bhutan, Sikkim and Darjeeling.
