C Momo

If you have ever met someone from Nepal, you must already know by now that Nepali people are crazy about momo. There are many varieties of momo and a simple recipe for one of them is posted here.

  4. I just wanted to say… I travelled to Nepal and LOVED chicken chili momos. I had a hard time recreating the food I had in Nepal when I got back, my chiya was just not the same 😦 But I tried this recipe and made it 5 times since. Tastes EXACTLY like the amazing chicken chili momos in Nepal. Thanks so much for this recipe!
