There are certain combinations of dishes where the side dish overshadows the main dish like momos and Tibetan momos chutney.
Momos are dumplings from Tibet and Nepal. They are very popular in many South Asian countries. In India also, it’s a very popular street snack. You can check the recipe of momos here.
These Tibetan dumplings are generally eaten with a very hot red dipping sauce made with tomatoes, garlic, and dry whole red chilies.
No matter how tasty your momos are, if the chutney is not good or you serve it without this red chili momos chutney, the dish will fail. Most of the momo lovers will agree with me on this.
I decide my favorite momos corner based on the taste of momos chutney they serve with it. If you ever try making momos at home, please don’t miss to serve this yummy Tibetan momos chutney with it.
