Momos are the ultimate antidote to a bad day at work, a gloomy monsoon afternoon or a sudden realisation that life sucks. The vegan momos at the Emami market in Calcutta are exactly what a dumpling should be- small, wrapped in a thin outer layer, and served with a super hot sauce! Stuffed with cabbage, ginger and onions, every mouthful reminds me of childhood afternoons spent in Darjeeling!
At Rs 40 a plate, this vegan snack is a healthy option compared to its fried counterpart.
Note to self: Must learn how to make momos at home.
