I am trying to incorporate healthy snacks into our menu for our hungry evenings. We love these steamed cabbage rolls with peanut sauce. Its a perfect snack for the evening that one can make in no time. Its a very healthy recipe as the cabbage rolls are steamed with a stuffing of veggies. I had written down this recipe long long time back from a TV show which was run by Mr.Hari Sankaran at that time. This recipe is such a winner. Its a guilt free snack as it has absolutely zero oil. Here is how to do steamed cabbage rolls with peanut sauce.

First lets make the cabbage rolls.
Gently seperate the leaves from the cabbage. Take 7-8 cabbage leaves and add it to boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Let it wilt. Remove and set aside to cool.

    Can one add other veggies like peas and carrots to the stuffing or will they not get cooked properly when steamed?

    Hi Suguna,

    Do the potatoes have to be boiled before being mixed with the other veggies and stuffed in the cabbage leaves?

      The potato is already boiled. The other veggies if using, hard veggies – do boil and add.
