Steaming makes this dish light and healthy but still very tasty. To make sure you have enough water at the bottom without continuously lifting the steamer to check, place a one-peso coin (make sure it's clean; wash it thoroughly) with the water while steaming. If the coin starts to make a sound, that’s the signal to refill the steamer with water.
