DSC_5261-001

When people think about Nepali food, everyone thinks about momo, but not very many people know about T: momo. Although not as popular as its famous brother momo, T: momo is unique :) Similar to bread buns, you can enjoy T:momo with any type of curry or with butter tea. I did not like T:momo when I was a kid, but I was a very picky eater. But if you have a kid, serve this steamed T: momo with butter and honey on top.

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon active dry yeast
2 cup of all purpose flour ( or wheat flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water (as needed to kneel the dough)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Directions:

1. Mix together yeast and 1/4 cup warm water.

2. In a large bowl, add flour, baking soda,  salt. Mix well. DSC_5238-001
