Sweet Momos

How about a bite of sweet momo??? .....mmm...yumm right! Here is my special recipe using coconut, sugar and raisin filling. Being a sweetaholic, I felt like giving a twist to the normal veg/meat momo recipe :) You can even replace the usual hot sauce with a chocolate sauce dip ;) This is not a traditional recipe but I'm sure anyone will love this different taste! So what are you waiting for? Wear your chef hat and get creative ;)

Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are a common type of appetizer/snack filled with meat, veggies etc. Of all the different names, the one which is more familiar to me is Lumpia. It is the name for spring rolls in the Philippines and Indonesia. Today I've prepared a veggie roll with a homemade wrap & a hot sauce dip. This sauce is not a traditional recipe but a normal tomato sauce with some extra spice in it.  Do try this as an appetizer or as a tea time snack.  Hope you all are enjoying the spring time & eagerly waiting to welcome the most awaited Summer time!....Have Fun!!!
