Nepali Momos and Dal Bhat

3.7/5 from 6 Customers

Spicerer Maisie lived in Kathmandu in 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. The word momo comes from a Chinese word meaning steamed bread, the dough is simply made from flour, water and oil and encases a mixture of mince, onion and fragrant spices. 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!

I never thought I'd be able to cook steamed buns but the Momos were so easy to make and delicious! The cauliflower was my favourite part of this dish. A mild curry but add in the green chilli pickle and wooomf! there's the heat!!

2/5

There is an awful lot to do and the result was bitter and didn’t have the flavour I was looking for. You win some, you lose some.

A lot of work for little reward! What a faff this meal is to make with so many steps and techniques required. The only bit that was any good were the momos, but the rest of it I would have happily binned. The dahl was like brown sludge and tasted similar to that, whilst the green chilli pickle was rocket fuel hot. I like spice, but not that much. As for the cauliflower tarkari, give it the last rites and move on. Carrot and Cucumber salad, not very exciting... A severe disappointment with nearly 3 hours of my life wasted.

Having been to Nepal and tasted the delights of Momos I was excited to make these. We really loved them, they tasted so authentic and I may order another box. Just would like a vegetarian version although the meat was not overpowering.

4/5

Great recipe and the Momos were fab - the dhal was great too (I did cook for longer than the recipe stated as I prefer it quite thick) and loved the chilli kick from the green chilli pickle!

Brilliant- glad you enjoyed this recipe, we love these magnificent Momos too!
