    Well...I dont know about the steaming part..with I have never done it..may eb you can try and let me know how did it go..


    dear Chitra your recipe sounds extremely interesting but i was just wondering if rice could be given steam(dum) with citrus juice n later add all veg. in it so it becomes more of a rice dish than salad.Do u think it is possible?
