Steamed Chicken Cabbage Rolls

Steamed Chicken Cabbage Rolls is a healthy recipe which everyone should try. Of all the traditional cooking methods, steaming is actually a healthy and natural way to cook. The technique is quite simple and lets one experience the unique flavours of the food that is cooked. The modern diet is more of junk and processed food so it is all the more necessary to turn to a healthy and simple way of cooking. Matched with other cooking methods, steaming barely needs any fat and conserves up to 50 per cent more nutrients in the foods. Don’t you think steaming is an ideal cooking technique that helps control your calorie and fat intake?

What is Steaming?

Steaming is basically a cooking method that employs hot steam to conduct the heat to the food, without disturbing it in a boiling liquid, leaving us with tender, moist results—when done correctly. And because it doesn’t require the food to be submerged, it avoids the loss of nutrients through leaching. It also cooks relatively quickly

Steamed Chicken Cabbage Rolls

Here I have used a steam technique known as en papillote (“in paper”) or in packets. In India, Patra is cooked like this, even fish in banana leaf packets. Here I have used Cabbage leaves as packets and rolled minced chicken that is seasoned with salt, pepper, mixed Italian herbs, garlic, onion and soya sauce. The cabbage roll or packet is then steamed in this moist-heat cooking technique. It is an easy recipe for a Steamed Chicken Cabbage Roll and I served it with Roasted Veggies to make it a wholesome meal.

For the vegetarians, I have this Steamed Cabbage Wraps. Do check it out. And if you are looking for a steamed momo recipe here it is here.
