Children's book illustration of Momo, a Nepali momo. This version is a veg momo. There are prayer flags blowing in the wind.
Momo is a steamed dumpling. It is often found in Nepal and Tibet as well as India and Bhutan. The first momos I tried were Nepali style so that’s what I drew inspiration from for this illustration. The momo dough is made of flour and there are various fillings such as meat, potatoes, paneer, and vegetables. It is served with a chutney made with tomatoes, chilies, garlic, and pepper. Also, I find it impossible to have “just one” momo!
