“I used this recipe for week 31 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Bhutan is my 31st stop. Unless otherwise noted, my Travel by Stove recipes are taken from authentic or traditional sources, and this recipe has been posted without any alternations or additions to the ingredients. MoMo dumplings are traditionally made with yak, but beef is also eaten in Bhutan and is an acceptable substitute in case you can't get yak in your area.”
1hr 15mins
4 dozen dumplings
