The fan fare for momos in our country is unmatched. In metro cities like Delhi and Kolkata which are essentially considered to be the hubs of momos, the snack can be found at every nook and corner. For those untouched by the phenomenon, momos are derived from the Tibetan word Mog Mog which means a bun that is stuffed. The bite-sized dumplings are believed to have originated in either Tibet or Nepal and brought to India with travelers from these regions who settled there. From vegetables to meat, all kinds of things can be stuffed in momos. 

The delicious snack is served in numerous ways, right from the classic steamed variety to fried and tandoori momos. The experimentation has been a reflection of the love and craze that momos enjoy among the people of the Indian sub-continent. However, this bride’s pure love for momos is quite evident when she is seen relishing it on her big day. Wondering what we are talking about. Take a look.

In the video shared by the bride, @ayu_sheeeee on her Instagram handle, she is seen holding a plate of momos with a fiery red chutney on the side. She eats the momos, one after the other, using a toothpick to avoid spoiling her makeup and finally does an adorable happy dance after the first few bites.
