Crunchy fried momos from Nepal
What’s a momo recap
Momos are one of Nepal’s national dishes. They are basically little dumplings but quite different to the ones you’ll find in India, Tibet, China and the rest of the world. The Nepalese momo is unique in many regards.
Momos in Nepal are made from a very light pastry and then filled with a savory mixture. The filling defines the momo along with its cooking method. Common momo fillings include chicken, buff, vegetable and cheese. They are served with a little bowl of masala curry dip that you can see in the center.
I’ll be covering the main types of momo throughout this series of food in Nepal. from Tourist momo’s to local momo’s and more.
Which is better: steamed momo or fried momo?
That’s hard depending on what you like. I personally try to stay away from fried foods as much as possible and have liking to steamed things anyway. So my vote goes to the traditional steamed momo.
However I’ve met many tourists who adore fried momos! They are crunchy and the perfect bite sized portions make for a great meal or snack.
Certainly if you are visiting Nepal give both versions a try!
