Recipe - Veg Momo (Tibbetian Delicacy)

Veg Momos

Momo is a dish native to Tibet region, basically it is a type of steamed dumpling which has a filling and it has become a traditional delicacy in Nepal, Tibet and India. Momos are served with sesame and peanut sauce (chutney) and tomato sauce as well. 

I like momos because they can be prepared at home easily, require very less oil, are pretty healthy and delicious that everybody just loves them. In veg momos you can make filling with vegetables of your choice including Pareen, tofu, mushrooms etc. I have added a lot of colorful vegetables in preparation. Here I am describing the step by step recipe, so give it a try and you will know how easy they are to make at home.
