Fried Potato Spinach Momos is my variation to traditional momos recipe where I have used only the potato and spinach for the filling and deep fried the momos. This is one of the best recipe I have tried with momos. Simple, tasty and delicious. Serve this momos with dipping sauce/chilli garlic sauce for lunch/dinner or even as snack and I am sure you will crave for more and more....
