  • 4 tsp Garlic Chopped
  • 1 tsp Black Peppercorns
  • 4 Sichuan Pepper Optional
  • 1 or 2 tsp Sugar If Required
  • Salt As Required
  • 12 Cups Of Water


For Preparation

  • Rinse the fresh tomatoes in running water a few times and keep aside.
  • Break up the dry red chillies and discard the seeds. Rinse them well in water.
  • In a saucepan over high heat, add the water and bring it to a boil.
  • Add the tomatoes and dry red chillies to the boiling water. Let them boil over medium heat for some time.
  • Cook them without covering for about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Once the tomatoes & dry red chillies are cooked and softened, use a strainer to drain out the water. Allow the tomatoes and red chillies to cool down at room temperature.

For Making Momos Chutney

  • Start by peeling off the skin of the tomatoes and roughly chop them. Or simply crush them using your hands.
  • Into a blender, add the chopped tomatoes, red chillies, Sichuan pepper, chopped garlic and black peppercorns.
  • Also add salt and sugar according to your taste preferences.
  • Blend the ingredients into a fine, smooth paste. Do not add water. If you prefer it to be of finer consistency, then strain the chutney using a fine mesh strainer.
  • Add the momos chutney into a bowl and serve with hot momos immediately!


  • If you prefer your momos chutney to be more spicy, then add more red chillies and chopped garlic. And if you prefer it to be mild and not able to handle the heat, reduce the number of chillies accordingly. 
  • Tomatoes & dried red chillies are boiled together to achieve a smoother blending process. However, if you don’t prefer to boil them, you can simply soak them in hot water until they become soft.
  • Make sure to pick up fresh & ripe tomatoes, and tender garlic cloves to make momos chutney. 
  • You can roast the whole garlic a little bit to put on a smoky flavour to the momos chutney. 
  • If you prefer your momos chutney to have an extra thick consistency, then put a few blanched almonds into the blender. This will give the chutney a rich and creamy texture. Also, it will develop a nutty flavour. The taste might vary a bit. 
  • If the tomatoes are too sour or tart, adjust the amount of sugar accordingly. Also, if you prefer, you can skip the sugar.
