Bamboo Steamer is a type of cookware made of bamboo and used to cook food with the use of steam.
Bamboo Puttu Maker can keep above the boiler (steamer, pressure cooker) so that the food is positioned above and not in water. Food will cook with a moist hot steam.
Steaming enables foods to keep their natural flavor, color, shape, and nutritious value better than when boiled or simmered in water.
