The origin of MoMo can be traced back to the Newar community of Kathmandu, Nepal's capital city. The Newars are renowned for their rich culinary traditions, and MoMo is just one of the many gems that have emerged from their kitchens. Over the years, MoMo has transcended regional boundaries and become an integral part of Nepali cuisine, representing a perfect amalgamation of traditional flavors and creative adaptations.


At Little Delhi, we follow the traditional method of making MoMos, ensuring an authentic Nepali dining experience for our customers. The process begins with kneading a soft, doughy mixture of all-purpose flour, water, and a pinch of salt. This dough is then divided into small portions and rolled out into thin circular wraps.


The filling is what truly sets our MoMos apart. We combine finely minced chicken, or vegetables, with a blend of aromatic spices and fresh herbs. Some secret ingredients passed down through generations elevate the taste to unparalleled heights. The filling is carefully wrapped in the dough, creating pleats to give the MoMo its characteristic crescent shape.

Steaming is the preferred cooking method, as it allows the flavors to infuse harmoniously while maintaining the nutritional value of the ingredients. The result is a delightful, wholesome MoMo that is both flavorful and healthy.


No MoMo experience is complete without the perfect accompanying dips. At Little Delhi, we serve our MoMos with these tantalizing dips:

  1. Tomato Achar (Tomato Chutney): This tangy and mildly spicy tomato chutney complements the MoMos beautifully, enhancing the overall flavor profile.

  2. Golbheda ko Achar (Tomato and Sesame Chutney): This unique chutney boasts a nutty and smoky flavor, with roasted sesame seeds blended into tomato-based goodness.


At Little Delhi, we take great pride in presenting our guests with an authentic Nepali dining experience. Our ambiance reflects the warmth and hospitality of Nepal, ensuring that our patrons feel welcome and at home.


When you order MoMos at Little Delhi, you'll be served a beautiful and piping-hot dumplings, carefully arranged and garnished. The sight and aroma are sure to awaken your taste buds. We recommend savoring each MoMo with all the dips, allowing the flavors to tantalize your palate in every possible way.


MoMo is more than just a dish; it's an expression of Nepal's rich cultural heritage and a testament to the country's culinary prowess. At Little Delhi, we take pride in sharing this beloved Nepali delicacy with our customers, ensuring that they experience the true essence of Nepal through their taste buds. Whether you are a seasoned MoMo enthusiast or trying it for the first time, we invite you to embark on this mouthwatering journey at Little Delhi and discover the unparalleled joy of savoring authentic Nepali MoMos.
