Easy ideas for steaming:
Cut into small pieces:
- Steaming vegetables is much easy when you make small slices or cubes. These do not take much time and soften quickly also.
Steam in batches:
- No matter how much you have to steam and how limited time you have – never rush. Place small batches of radish in the steamer basket so that each piece gets enough time to cook and all cubes or slices are cooked evenly.
- You may not always be able to predict the time for steaming and if you try to steam it on high flame, you may not be able to do it correctly. So, the best option would be to keep medium flame while steaming.
Check for tenderness:
- Before removing the radishes from the basket and concluding that your vegetable is cooked, check for the tenderness. You can use your knife or fork to pierce into the vegetable and check its tenderness. Once done, you can remove it from the steamer.
