Nepali Momos ~ Dal Bhat

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!
