A Yummy Homemade Sauce to Pair With Momos

Momos are Chinese dumplings, stuffed with veggies or meat, that are very popular throughout the world. Steamed momos are healthier compared to the deep-fried ones.

Momos are delicious on their own—but they're even tastier when paired with a tangy and spicy sauce. You can make this tomato chili dip at home in just 10 to 15 minutes.

Let me now share the recipe.
