Momo is a Tibetan recipe which can be a one pot meal. It is similar to Japanese gyozas and Chinese dimsums, Momo word derived from Chinese word meaning “Steamed bread” has a filling from ground meat. It is a common street snacks in Nepal, Tibet and the Himalayan regions of Northern India. This is my childhood favorite.
