Momos are Tibetan dumplings filled with meat, veggie or vegan fillings, in wheat flour wrappers.
They are cooked steamed or fried and also sold uncooked frozen in bulk bags.
Momos were introduced to India and Nepal by Tibetans living in exile there and have now become a popular street food in Delhi and Kathmandu.
It has been gaining popularity in Toronto with the yearly "Momo Crawl" organised by Students For Free Tibet in Parkdale, where majority of our Tibetans have found home in Toronto.
