Momos Chutney has a combination of different flavours..

It has a prominent spicy taste and thats how it is meant to be..

Other than that it is tangy, garlicky (is that even a word??) anyways so what I am trying to say is unlike our regular tomato chutney this has a little bit different flavour to it..

I think if you ask any Indian about his/her favourite food. Then it has to be Indian street food.

Just imagining the different kinds namely Pani-puri, chaat, pav bhaji, vada pau, bhajji, kachori, jalebi, samosa and this and that phew is making my mouth water.

If there is one thing that I really miss staying away from Indian then undoubtedly it has to be the street foods.

One such street food that is gaining popularity in India lately is Momos and the delicious Momos Chutney served with it.

I have already shared the recipe for Palak Paneer Momos and this Momos Chutney pairs perfectly well with it.

Let me tell you this Momos Chutney is not for the faint hearted person.

This is super spicy.

So if you do not like to eat spicy food then there are two things that you can do to adjust the Momos Chutney taste.

A. You can remove all the seeds from either the Kashmiri red chillies or the red chillies and use it accordingly or
B. Simple just reduce the number of chillies used to taste your needs.

But let me tell you this is one spicy dish and the red chillies is what brings the taste in this Momos Chutney recipe.

There is one particular ingredient that I would like to mention here and that is Sichuan pepper, Sichuan peppercorn, Szechuan pepper, or Chinese coriander.

If you could find this ingredient then do definitely use it in the Momos Chutney recipe this will give a authnetic taste to the recipe.
