I was introduced to lot many new tastes at the Capital City of India-New Delhi.. Soon after our wedding me and hubby flew to Delhi and Manali for 23 days long amazing trip❤❤!! The streets of Delhi amused me with its rich culture,crowd, and of course with the food varieties.. My first exposure to the North Indian Food..Momos is that one snack we loved to eat anytime from the Nepali ladies who sold it in Bicycles..!! They tasted awesome..And now me too started cooking it at home itself, which became my family’s favorite one.. 10375082_830191020332173_4536481035165731839_n And im taking this awesome dish to Angie’s Fiesta Friday #23 along with Falooda..

  1. 1 “bug” of ginger, made me giggle!! I love foods of Nepal and these Momos remind me of the giant soup dumplings in Chinese cuisine . . . . I can’t wait to try these, they look so simple except for the pleating!
