Stuffed Cabbages (Dolmas)

March 3, 2014

The term dolma covers a variety of stuffed vegetable dishes, widespread in the Middle East and Mediterranean area. Dolma is a family of stuffed vegetable dishes common in the Mediterranean Basin and Middle East, as well surrounding regions including theBalkans, Armenia, Iran, and Central Asia. Common vegetables to stuff include tomato, pepper, onion, zucchini, eggplant, and garlic. Grape or cabbage leaves wrapped around a filling are called 'sarma', but are also often called 'dolma' or 'yaprak dolma' (Долма:Russian Translation) The stuffing may or may not include meat. Meat dolmas are generally served warm, often with egg-lemon or garlic yogurt sauce; meatless ones are generally served cold. The filling generally consists of rice, minced meat or grains. In either case, the filling includes onion, herbs like dill, mint or parsley and spices. Meatless fillings are cooked with olive oil and include raisins or currants, onion, nuts or pulses. Here I, am sharing with you Dolams made of leftover Nasi Goreng. I had prepared Nasi Goreng yestarday and had some leftover, so I prepared this Dolmas. H and I had it cold. Added cheese for him, for me cheeseless. But they tasted very lovely. Lets go to the recipe.

8 Nos Cabbage leaves
1 Cup Nasi Goreng
3 Tablespoons cheese grated

Cut the stem of the cabbage and separate the leaves. Put them in Boiling water for 2 minutes till the slightly soft. I put them in the cabbage leaves in a microwave. Take a proof bag and put the washed cabbage leave and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Drain the cabbage leaves and prepare to wrap everything up.
Mix the cheese and Nasi Goreng togather . Wrapping is very simple. Take a leaf and put two tablespoons of stuffing in the middle. Fold over the top of the leaf onto the stuffing, then fold over the two sides onto the middle, and then roll it all up. Tie the wraps with onion leaks and keep aside. The Dolmas are ready to serve. They are very tasty. If you want you can add more cheese to make it cheesey.
