‘RIP momos’: Foodies give thumbs down to pineapple momos
The video shared on Instagram shows the street vendor using pineapple as fillings for momos. Would you dare to try it?
Momo is a delectable street food that brings joy to the palates of many. While some relish it deep-fried, others take pleasure in the steamed version. As for condiments, choices vary. Some favour the combination of red chutney and mayonnaise, while others prefer one of them individually. The widespread popularity of this dish has prompted people to experiment with it and give birth to unexpected fusions, with the recent one being pineapple momos. Yes, you read that right.
“Pinneapple momos,” reads the caption to the video shared on Instagram by video creator Jatin Kumar. The video shared by Kumar shows a street vendor making pineapple momos. He first cuts a slice of pineapple into small pieces and later uses them solely as fillings for momos. As the video progresses, the vendor seals the momos and steams them. He didn't stop here and deep fries them. Once the momos are crisp and golden brown, he plates them. Towards the end of this video, a man breaks momos into two to show pineapple as its filling.
