While momos are synonymous with street food in Delhi, many people are unaware that they were founded by the Newars of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal. These delicious steamed dumplings have become an Indian favorite and we lovingly accepted them into our kitchen. Indians usually eat momos with a spicy red chutney, but in Anupam Kher’s video we see them enjoying momos the Nepalese way. In the Kathmandu Valley, the traditional way to serve momos is to use a watery soup / broth called jhol et achar which has the consistency of chutney.
If looking at Anupam Kher’s Instagram story has made you hungry for momos, then we’ve got a fun and delicious idea for you. Why not make momos at home? To make momos, you will need to make the filling of your choice, vegetarian or non-vegetarian, then use a maida-based dough to make the dumplings.
