Spicerer Maisie lived in Kathmandu, Nepal for 10 years and a recent trip back there reignited her love of momos, a type of filled dumpling and the most popular street food of the region. Momos are always served with a momo achar (or pickle) made from tomatoes, toasted sesame and timut pepper - a spice reminiscent of Sichuan pepper and used in most Nepali cooking. For the main event we have a Nepali staple, dal bhat or dal with rice which is served at every meal including breakfast! Finally we’ve got chiya, tea brewed with evaporated milk and lots of spices served with a baked version of Nepali biscuits known as khajuri.

5/5

Two years ago we were in Nepal, where we ate lentil stew and chicken curry every night on the trail, and momos in Kathmandu as our first meal. This was pretty close! The momos in particular were surprisingly easy and absolutely delicious

Brilliant- it's great to hear this recipe reminded you of your travels! It looks like you made some marvellous momos!

5/5

This took a while to cook but was so flavoursome. This was a brilliant Date Night

Glad you enjoyed this delicious Date Night meal, happy spicing!

4/5

I really enjoyed this meal. The starter dumplings were really delicious. I really enjoyed the main curry and the biscuits were really lovely too. Turns out I’m not a fan of Chai Tea though

We're so glad to hear how much you enjoyed (most of!) the elements of this meal! Happy spicing!
