Momos are arguably the most popular street snack in India. A variety of momos can be found across the country, and humble food constantly comes through various experiments.
While some of these experiments succeed, others fail. The “mithai momo” is one of those experiences that did not go over well with foodies.
A Twitter user, who goes by the name @MukeshVMakhija, shared a video in which a vendor can be seen making a large dumpling with several traditional Indian sweets.
The “mithai momo” recipe begins with the cook rolling a dough of what appears to be refined flour into a flat sheet. He then adds two gulab jamunsof them motichoor ladoos, and two white mawa cakes in the center of the sheet. Along with these six pieces of rich Indian sweets, the cook also pours a cup of Gajar ka Halwa.
The cook then seals all these toppings and shapes the leaf into a large dumpling and stores it inside a steamer. Once the dumpling is cooked, the cook finally serves it with a side of chocolate syrup.
