Why do I steam cook?

You can save a lot of time and gas.

My 90+ parental grandmom, my 85+ maternal Grandmom, my mom & all have been doing this since ages & I had observed from them and have been using the same since my cooking times of 2012. Most veggies were, are steamed in our families, followed by tempering or addition of ground masala.

I don’t prefer sauteing vegetables in oil for long and this steaming will reduce your oil consumption too. Half a spoon to temper & mix. Tadaa, done ✅. You don’t need to have 7-10 kadai/pan. (One more saving).No lots of vessels calling you from the sink.

We don’t prefer open cooking or boiling of vegetables as they lose colour, flavour and some claim even nutrition(I am not a nutritional expert/medical professional).
It takes longer time too, not al dente form like steamed.

You don’t have to invest in separate kitchen equipment for this. Your idly pot would do and any two vessels with proper plates to close inside pressure cooker will suffice. #nobuy2020.I avoid buying anything as much as possible).👍❌

You can batch cook vegetables like this. Most of the vegetables can be steamed. Ore kaalula rendu maanga , if your steamer has more plates naalu maanga kooda 😃. Try & let me know.
