Pan fried Momo (Kothey Momo)
Kothey momo is a signature Nepali dish. It is a half fried and half steamed momo, often elongated in shape. The filling can be either vegetables or meat. They are served with different types of sauces to bring out that tangy pot-sticker flavour.
In traditional Nepali cooking, Kothey momos are filled with pork or buff meat. The filling is also more gingery than others, as ginger, offsets the taste of meat very well. However, in The Momo King, we choose to serve a slightly modified version that can be enjoyed by everyone.
Traditionally, Kothey momos come with soup. The frying leaves the dough outside slightly charred and crispy, which gives kothey momo an exciting texture. While the inside filling retains its juiciness, the outer lining attains a somewhat crunchy flavour that intensifies the taste.
