When we cook using the Varoma tray and dish, we are making use of the steam generated in the mixing bowl to cook the stacked layers in the Varoma dish above the lid! Think about flavours at every layer and how fast and convenient it is to cook many dishes in one go! In under an hour, rice, soup, vegetables and a meat dish can cooked simultaneously – saving you time and effort to cook and clean up!

Below is an example of how we can have many dishes done using the Varoma Perfect Fit set and steaming to cook a 4-in-1 meal consisting of : Talam Berlauk which is a savory steamed rice cake; the Pais Ikan Selar, a spicy fish dish wrapped in banana leaf; and Asam Rebus, a hot and spicy soup that looks unassuming but packs a punch!
