I have had one of the best momos or call them dumpling in streets of Delhi NCR. It’s a very popular street food in North India. It is served with a spicy sauce which is my favorite. You will get varieties of momos in North India (Veg momos, Paneer momos, Veg grilled momos, Chicken momos, Deep fried momos etc)
