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.

It was a choice between Kathmandu and another Date Night for an early Valentine's Day meal... I read about the Momos and that swung it for me - did not disappoint! Delicious, and so easy to make. They have taught me a new cooking method, a sort of fried/steamed combo. Despite my wife's love of mixed spice (Khajuri) and Evaporated Milk (Chiya) the Momos stole the show. Nepal added to the list places to visit! Excellent Date Night

Wow, this looks fantastic - those magnificent momos are really waving the flag for this wonderful meal!
