Tikka Masala Momos

A momo is a Tibetan dumpling, not unlike a Japanese gyoza or a Chinese baozi. They also turn up in Indian cuisine. Tibetan dishes borrow from Indian and Chinese cuisines, and these momos came from a place that serves Indian, Nepali, and other Asian dishes. The momos come served several different ways, with several different fillings. These were filled with chicken and covered in tikka masala sauce.

The filling is not heavily spiced, but was flavorful enough to hold up against the rather hearty but mild tikka masala sauce. The eight pieces plus the sauce made for a substantial lunch.
