We love street food, and if we had to pick one street food that has truly caused a revolution of sorts in recent years, it has to be momos. It is hard to imagine that the dumpling snack has only risen to prominence in the last 15 years. For the uninitiated momo is a type of dumpling stuffed with either meat or veggies. According to experts, it originally hails from Tibet, however, it is very much a part of India's street food fare and so naturally it has been reimagined in many ways. We have tried tandoori momos, chocolate momos, soupy momos and whatnot. But have you ever tried keto veg momos?
