Sutra 47 - Steam Cooking

Steam cooking retains nearly 90% of the nutrients. I use a three tiered one, where I steam vegetables, soaked dals and rice in one go. It makes a complete meal. The vegetables taste better when steam cooked. You can buy stainless steel steam cooking vessels or even a full steam cooking unit with the electric stove built in. Steam has more heat than fire and cooks faster.

Pressure cooking takes away 50% of the nutrients. I will write more about charcoal or slow cooking in my later posts after I have experimented it myself.

If weekdays are a rush, make it point to eat steam cooked food over weekends.
