Red Chutney or Mayo, Which One’s Your Momo Mate? #POLL

Indian street food sees a rainbow of desi, international, and international-turned-desi offerings (yes, we are totally looking at you “hakka noodles”). One such widely-consumed street that falls in the third category is momos. The Tibetan food, which is also consumed on a large scale in North-Eastern India, has made its way to the thriving street food markets of the country. With a few tweaks in size and stuffing here and there.

The steamed Tibetan dumpling is served with a side of fiery hot and vibrant red chilli chutney that can put the most tolerant of palates on fire. But for the more faint-hearted, there is a milder sauce to dip the momo in – the mighty mayonnaise. Cringe as you may, there is something really satisfying about that steamed dumpling and mayo combo. Don’t you think so? Or are you a pro-red chutney momo lover? Vote for your favourite chutney below and let us know!

    Red chilies are an essential ingredient and lend the sauce its deep red color and spicy flavor. Whenever I eat momos with red chutney at any restaurant, I have a runny nose and tears flowing down my face due to the intense heat of the fiery chutney. But thats the best for momos. Thank you, it was fun reading!
