Momo is a type of steamed bun with or without filling. Momo is a traditional delicacy in Nepal, Tibet ,among Nepalese/Tibetan communities in Bhutan, and also the North Eastern part of India. It is one of the most popular fast foods in many regions of Nepal . It is mostly stuffed with different types of meat. Over the years ,Vegetarian Momos have also become popular with different varieties of Vegetarian stuffing. I have made Momos many times. But this time I have tried the Multi Grain Momos. This is far more healthy and Nutritious. My kids love this and I find it easier to incorporate Multi Grains into their diet.
