The hosts, the guide, the fact that I learnt something new and useful and got to eat what I made.

Really fun and informative afternoon. We got to see how to make all the aspects of the momos and then tried our best to fold them like Purna showed us. The sampling at the end was excellent!

Making Momos with Purna and Dil was a wonderful experience. We were offered the voice of vegetarian or non- vegetarian beforehand. Purna explained all the ingredients and then showed us what to do. We were involved in the preparation from the start and got stuck in. We then ate what we had made with them and it was delicious.

We loved the MoMo class. Purna showed us five different methods of wrapping MoMos. We kneaded the flour and water into the wrappers and put our chopped vegetables inside. He showed us the steaming process and showed us how to make a delicious sauce to accompany them. In the end we got to enjoy our hard work and the benefits of Purna’s teaching skills. Jack & Diana
