momo jhol acharfurthermore, some important and critical tips and recommendations for best momos soup recipe. firstly, i have used the all purpose flour or maida for momos covering for the traditional taste. alternatively, wheat and atta momos can also be served with same achar or soup. secondly, i have added 3 red chillies while preparing the sesame soup or achar. i found it optimal, however the red chillies number can be increased or decreased based on taste preference. lastly, the same achar can be prepared as momos chutney by grounding to thick consistency.
