Love dim sum, dumplings of all types and momo is excellent. Found the recipes at recipecottage after watching restaurant makeover and Chef Lynn's reaction to it. I actually use bison because of its leanness since i cannot find yak. Simple flavors but that is why it is important to use enough ginger and garlic. Test the momo by dropping a mini pea size ball into the oil and correct seasonings if needed. I like a strong ginger flavor. Will post ingredients for Sherpa Momo and Nepalese under directions as well, same dough and methods as the Tibetan. Go crazy and use vegetarian or whatever you like, but I think the first one is the best to try and get the authentic Tibetan taste to build on. If you want a dipping sauce with them, this seems like a good one: Simple Soy Dipping Sauce final serving amounts are guesstimates, depends on the size you make them.
