Momos Magic is a brand new concept offering a taste of Himalayan food,
the Himalayan dimsum. We make them fresh daily and steam in front of you. The best momos, yet.
Momos are dumplings made with a spoonful of stuffing wrapped in special dough.
Momos are usually steamed, though they are sometimes deep-fried or pan-fried.
The filling of meat or vegetables becomes succulent as it produces an intensively
flavored broth sealed inside the wrappers.
Momos are dumplings native to Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, and the Himalayan states of India. Biting into hot steamy Momos, with a touch of tasty, spicy sauce is a food lovers delight. Momos are more than just food, they are 'wrapped' with love and a lot of tender care. It is arguably the most popular fast food in Nepal. There are more momo corners in Kathmandu than all the McDonald's and Subways combined in the city of New York.
Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian momos are widely popular in the region. Momos are commonly steamed, however, pan-fried and deep-fried are not unusual at many places, especially in restaurants.
Vegetarian: fresh vegetables, textured soy chunk or paneer are common fillings that are usually mixed with seasonal vegetables.
Non-Vegetarian: Buff meat (buffalo) is popular in Nepal, one of the reasons being its low price compared to the rivals, chicken or goat. Outside of Nepal, beef and turkey join the group. Buff and Beef probably taste similar. In this region chicken and prawns are popular.
Steamed momos: This is definitely the most common way of cooking momos. Usually they are cooked in a steamer for 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the wrap and amount of fillings. It is wildly popular among the fast-food restaurants that serve them right off the steamers.
Fried momos: More common in dine-in type (slow) restaurants, fried momos are steamed momos that are either pan fried until the outer layer turns red (ish) or deep fried.
