Date Night in Kathmandu

Momo (a colloquial form of the Tibetan word 'mog mog') is a type of filled dumpling, originally from Tibet but now a delicay in Nepal - it is believed that Nepali merchants brought the recipe back home with them after travelling to Tibet to trade. Momos are almost 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.
