Guest blogger:Sujita Maharjan

Hello, my name is Suzie and I am currently living in Sydney but was born and grew up in Kathmandu, Nepal. This city is rich in vibrant culture heritage and food of course.

Well, talking about my cooking passion, it’s been few years I started preparing different recipes at home. One the reason behind my interest in cooking is my husband appreciates my effort in cooking and enjoy them trying it out. I don’t have separate social media portal or blog where I share food recipes and pictures but I have shared food pics in my personal Facebook page and lots of friends and family dropped positive comments.

My mum is fantastic cook, I enjoy meal prepared by her.  I love preparing and eating food with friends and family.  After Nepalese cuisine, I try to cook Thai food may be because we share similar types of herbs to prepare dishes.  At last, thanks to Charinya for giving me opportunity to be guest blogger to share my hometown recipes in her blog.

Dumplings (Momos)

This is most popular Nepalese food. ­It can be made with any meat mince or vegetables, according to your preference. I am sharing steamed momos recipe today, but I have attached picture of another momos recipes. This can be made in 3 stages –marinate mince with other ingredients, prepare sauce and stream momos.
