If you love Momos, then you will definitely love these Tibetan Tingmos/ Ting Momos. Easy to make, these steamed buns are scantly filled with spring onions and fresh coriander with a hint of ginger and garlic. Serve them with a really spicy Sepen sauce/ chutney and see them disappear before your eyes!
e're a bread baking group at the We Knead To Bake, and to my mind, if there's yeast in the dough and it's a bread of some sort, then the recipe qualifies for us to make. So we're making a savoury Tibetan yeasted bread called Tingmos or Ting Momos (also called Te Momos by the Sherpas), ...

A recipe for Lentil & Sprout Relish from Chef Hari Nayak's new book, the The Cafe Spice Cookbook.
Also a worldwide giveaway of 2 copies of the cookbook! 
eople who know me well know I like to read, and a cosy comfortable corner, a good book, a steaming hot cup of tea (even better if it's masala chai) is one of my ideas of heaven. Thrown in some rains outside and some crisp, savoury eats and I couldn't really ask for more.
