Steaming is one of the healthiest and nutrituous ways of cooking techniques. I love steam cooked dishes as they are low cal, healthy ,tasty and nutient filled .A few days back when one of the most renowned brands " Tupperware " mailed me asking me if i could join hands with them  in spreading awareness about healthy cooking and a healthy food lifestyle through "Tupperware - Steam It " , I happily agreed to do so and be a part of the good cause. Tupper Ware Steamer is an engineered revolutionary product with features for safe & hygienic cooking. It has two steam vents on the cover which uplift the steam away from the handle for safety. The lid is dome shaped to drain the water to its side so food does not become soggy.Since it has 2 compartments , together you can steam differnt food stuff.

Momo's was something i had learnt even before i started blogging . Taste wise i can proudly say my momo's with spicy dip are no less than any famous restuarant one's . But look wise HeHe... its better not to compare . With 2 kids n other n number of jobs always queued up, i try to wind up the whole momo making session quickly. But yes that doesn't mean there is any compromise in taste and health quotients The main thing to remember is roll the sheets as thin as possible towards the edges , make the filling crunchy and mildly spiced and never overcook it  . I have taken step by step photo's to make things easier for you all .Agree that making momo's is slightly labour intensive procedure but the end result is definitely worth the effort. With practice the shapes can better & better. I happened to stumble upon a video in Youtube and loved it absolutely . If you want you too can have a look here .. loved the way Chef shapes his dumplings ...

Without much talk , lets quickly get into making of Steamed Vegetable Momo's ....

    I know the red chutney with momo is tempting... 

NOTE :

  1. You can tweak and make any filling with your choice of veggies can add baby corn , mushroom etc.
  2. The veggies used for the filling should be super fine chopped and partially cooked .
  3. Outer covering should be thinly rolled and not overcoked. if you overcook it will become hard .
  4. To make it more healthy you can make a dough by using wheat flour and maida in equal proportion or completely omit maida. However wheat flour momos would be little chewy.

Tupperware steam it can be used to steam anything . I use it to steam my sprouts , veggies for salads ,kozhukattai , idli , dhokla etc
