It is an improvised version of daal - bhaat, the staple food Nepalis eat for lunch and dinner. The set may include rice or dhindo, as per choice. Dhindo, made of buckwheat, is ideal for diabetics, it is also something very hard to find in other countries. Gundruk, a part of this dish, is a spicy dried spinach that is also exclusively made in Nepal. The set looks very appealing like a rainbow served on your plate. You can choose either vegetarian or non-vegetarian, both serving equally authentic Nepali tastes. This kind of meal usually comes with the opportunity to add further rice, lentils, veggies, and pickles. Plus, many places offer extras such as papad- a thin disc-shaped crispy food or mohi- which is a thin mixture of yogurt and water. These extras not only sooth the taste buds but also have dietary and digestive benefits.

Other varieties of momo include kothey- base fried crispy momo, chilly- momo made with a spicy mix of capsicum, onions, peppers, etc. and jhol- momo in a flavored soup. Acquired from Tibetans, momos (steamed or fried dumplings) deserve a mention as one of the most popular snacks among Nepali. Momos at local shops are the most loved by the people here. The size of the dumplings vary, depending on the price. The achaar (pickle) accompanying the steamed momos has a lip-smacking taste that lingers.
    Recently, momos have undergone several modifications open momo, c-momo, tea momo, rainbow momo, etc. In the evening, you can taste the Roti and Nann-Tandoori chicken/ sekuwa (meat roasted in wood in traditional Nepalese style.)
