You know what goes really well with this dropping temperature? A plate of piping hot momos. Every Dilliwala worth their salt—and spicy momo chutney—has a terrible weakness for these little dumplings. Not they aren't good on their own, but when dipped in that fiery hot chutney they can almost make you cry with joy (it could just be the chutney, actually). Only in Delhi NCR will you find tandoori momos and butter chicken momos. Don't tell us that food isn't innovative anymore after having a plate of these.
Let's look at some of the region's favourite momo haunts to get you your dumpling fix for the weekend!
