We just love momo; don’t we? Soft steamed dough, with juicy chicken, paneer and meat stuffing, and some fiery chutney by the side — a plate of momo steals our heart in just no time. Although momo finds its origin in a Nepali/Tibetian kitchen, today it has become one of the most popular street foods across India. We literally find a momo joint at every nook and corner of the country. Traditionally, momo is served with a fiery red chutney, which is often replaced by schezwan chutney and mayonnaise. However, you can still find this homemade chilli-garlic red chutney being served at Nepali restaurants in your town. Have you ever tried the tomato chutney these Himalayan kitchens serve along with the momo and red chutney? Tastes delicious, isn’t it? This Nepali-style tomato chutney adds the right amount of tanginess and spice to your meal. You will also find this chutney being served along with a thakali thali (Nepali platter).
