Why Momo Is A National Crush?

Firstly, momo making is quite simple and exciting to practice. It is essentially a type of steamed bun. The dough is made by mixing flour and water together. The filling is made with a mixture of minced meat or chicken, fish, vegetables, corns, onions, coriander, and aromatic Asian herbs or spices. Put them together, steam or fry them, and yippee your Momo is ready!

Secondly, Momos are fairly experimental and easily available in every nook and corner of Indian streets. There are no fixed ingredients which means people from all over the globe can pick and mix stuff accordingly to the local products & create their own version of Momo. Newari merchants may have brought the recipe, and the name ‘Momo’ might have derived from Tibet, with yak meat & seasoning of the dish with local ingredients, but now there are a variety of Momos and dumplings which are adaptable to suit the taste buds of even the ones who are very choosy about their foods and taste.

Dough making and stuffing

Some of the most popular Momos dishes are: Steamed Momo, Kothey Momo: half steamed, Chilli Momos, Fried Momo Jhol Momo (Jhol meaning a thick soupy base, usually spicy), Open Momo (perfect to mix & match your chutney/sauce/ by filling in each open pocket, Buckwheat Momo, Paneer/Cheese Momos, Churrpi Momo, Jain Momos, Classic Chicken Momos, Green Momo (the dough is mixed with spinach). etc.

Types of Momos

Well! The choice is limitless; therefore, if you ever get a chance for momo making at home, feel free to customize & create your own unique momo food recipe. If you want to add eggs to the mixture add them! Tender coconut with chili flakes, add it! The world of Momo is Marvellous and won’t feel bad about it. It loves to embrace the taste and spread it across states, countries, and continents. But too much experimenting can play a spoilsport, right? Especially, if you’re a newbie in the cooking business. So be careful. Nevertheless, the appeal of Momo is more than just its taste. For many people, especially Nepalese and Tibetan who have grown up alongside the cuisine, for them Momo is a food practice, memory and legacy passed on from one gen to the next-gen. It’s like a staple for them and they love their own perfect version.

The third and the best reason for Momo being a national food crush is, its instant availability in every nook and corner of the streets. Wander through the streets of India and you will find little cafés, restaurants, or even five-star hotels selling Momo food. Go for birthday parties, get-togethers, or bachelor parties and you will surely find Momo on the menu list, in fact, the trend is to keep frozen Momo in your fridges. Momo in India especially in the North-eastern part has become a routine like taking a bath or brushing your teeth. Ordering Momo at a cafe or a restaurant is like regular practice; a food ordered by your instinct and not after brainstorming or deep thinking! Momo making is also a family & friendship affair; because the process is very simple. It is common for families and friendship groups to come together and spend a couple of hours catching up and rejoicing the moments whilst making & relishing this delicious cuisine – MOMO.

Lastly, Momos can be all season, comfort food or the ‘life’ of any party; It’s the best food – be it rainy or winter season; when the sun is out; when you’re feeling low; when your stomach needs a quick appetizer to suffice hunger or you look for starters during the pool parties or celebrations. Momos are meant for every occasion, season, and moment of life. This is one great element that makes Momo so popular and our explanation of why Momo is now the national ‘food’ crush in India.

Momo is not just food you eat; it’s a feeling, it’s a moment; it’s a celebration with your friends or family that you’ll cherish throughout your life. All that conversations and laughter riots make up for an exquisite Momo experience. Momo has become the soul food of the nation. And, when you create good memories, you will surely want to replicate them and re-live them again & again – individually or with a caravan of friends. It doesn’t matter whether you live to eat or eat to live, Momo Dumplings are for all.

Momo Dumplings are for all.
