i have posted a lot of snacks recipes till now, but this has to be one of the healthy and tasty snack recipes. i personally believe any meal or dish prepared out of steam has to be a healthy option. we generally use or add oil to prepare it, assuming that using oil it makes a tasty dish. but there are other ways of preparing the dish too. initially, i thought of preparing this dish with bread coating and deep-frying them similar to the traditional spring roll. but gave up the idea as the leaves may open up while deep frying and also i felt it may complicate thing up. moreover, there is always this taboo attached to deep frying as it not healthy and hence i opted for the steaming option.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the stuffed cabbage rolls recipe. firstly, selecting a whole cabbage is the key to this recipe. i would not recommend using a tender cabbage for this recipe. tender cabbage may not be easy to peel the leaves one by and may break or crack. if you have a tender one, you can dip the entire cabbage in hot water for 15 minutes before using it. secondly, the stuffing can be added as per your choice and preference. i have mimicked the stuffing as minced meat with boiled meal maker which also helps to fill your stomach. but not mandatory to use it and can use as per your choice. lastly, just before serving i prepared soy sauce tempering with some spices and spring onion and poured on top of these steamed rolls. you may actually pan fry the rolls with the prepared sauce just before serving.
