Blogging Marathon# 39 – Indian States: Day 25
Dish: Vegetarian Momos
Sikkim is a state in northeastern India located in the Himalayan mountains. The state is bordered by Nepal to the west, Tibet to the north and east, Bhutan to the east and West Bengal to the south. Sikkim is the least populous state in India and it is the only state with an ethic Nepali majority.
Today’s Dish: Momos are a type of dumplings that are native to Nepal and some parts of Tibet. Because of the large Nepalese population in Sikkim, it seemed fitting to make momos for today. Traditionally, momos are prepared with ground meat filling. In Sikkim, meat and cheese fillings are more famous.
Today I made a veggie filled momo. I used the same filling with tofu, broccoli, cabbage etc., that I used for the wontons here. Shaping them was a little tricky and mine didn’t turn out too good looking, but they tasted yummy anyway. I was surprised when my super picky son also liked these momos.
