This momos chutney recipe is an Asian-inspired spicy momo sauce that pairs well with savory dumplings.
Take it a step further and enjoy it with spring rolls, manchow soup, or your favorite fried rice.
Dumplings are incomplete without a spicy sauce in my opinion and something that is homemade just hits better than Sriracha, no?
Why you should make it? It comes together in a matter of minutes!
- chili onion crunch (found at Trader Joes or Asian Markets) or a substitute
- spicy red chili flakes
- white pepper powder
- toasted sesame oil
- garlic powder
- soy sauce (dark preferred)
- salt (optional)
See the recipe card for quantities and additional ingredients.
Combine all of the ingredients together... THAT'S IT!
Or... you can blend the ingredients in a chutney machine for a smoother texture momo sauce. You can add the green onions before or after blending, both taste great!
Serve it with...
- Onion Crunch- Feel free to substitute it with your favorite store bought chili oil. Add dried onions to the mix if you prefer the crunch.
- Dark Soy Sauce- If using low sodium soy sauce, then I recommend increasing the quantity of the soy sauce.
- Spicy - I grind my own spicy peppers to add to this momo chutney recipe.
- Kid friendly - combine soy sauce, sesame oil, and white pepper powder together.

Yes, substitute with chili oil and add dried onions to the chutney.
