Yomari Recipe!!

Happy Yomari Punni Everyone! Yomari is very popular within Newari community in Nepal. Every year on second of full moon day, people from Newari community make this delicacy. The preparation requires lots of practice and experience. Although, I had never made one, I remember my grandmother making Yomaris every year and they were the tastiest and most perfect looking ones. I haven't have Yomaris since I moved to the States and I have no idea why I did not try to make it earlier. Anyways, this year I did it. Not so perfect looking but gave me the taste and lots of great memories associated with this yummy dish. And if you are like me, far away from home and want to make some easy Yomaris then here is the recipe for you to try:
