What once originated thousands of miles away in Tibet, has found a unique resonance with the Indian taste buds in recent years. Momos, the bite-sized wonders, are today a key component of the Indian street food culture.
Spotted in the streets, highways and every nook and corner of the country, Momos owe their appeal to the versatility of their stuffing. Customised to offer choicest of flavours according to the regional availability of ingredients and local preferences, Momos can be prepared using a variety of cooking styles ranging from Steamed and Wok Tossed to Tandoori and Baked. For instance, Momos served in North India today are typically filled with seasonal vegetables, chicken and mutton whereas the dumplings native to Tibet are traditionally filled with yak meat and eaten with a variety of sauces.
Taking a cue from the diversity offered by this Tibetan delicacy in mouth-watering flavours, Elante Mall, Chandigarh’s favourite destination for shopping, food and fun, in association with GoBuzzinga, is all set to organise Chandigarh’s Biggest Momo Festival.
The Momo Festival will put on platter over 300 delightful varieties of the Tibetan delicacy ranging from the usual Chicken Momo to the experimental Kurkure Momo.
Dates: February 24 and 25, 2018
Time: 12 pm to 10 pm
Venue: The Courtyard, Elante Mall
Key attractions at Chandigarh’s Biggest Momo Festival will be the Fusion Momos, most of which are being introduced for the first time in the region.
