A steamer is essentially equipment in which food can be steamed. Steamed food has little or no oil, and is considered a healthy choice. A steamer is generally a sealed vessel in which the lower part contains water and the upper part contains foods to be steamed.
It is heated over a stove to produce steam and cook the food. A steamer may also be electrically-powered. Have a go at some delectable steamed foods like the Cooked Rice Idli, Dhokla Sushi with Carrots, Doodhi Muthia, Kothimbir Vadi and Momos.
