Dolma / Sarma

Vine leaves... Red pepper... Cabbage leaves...  Stuff 'em all!

This is hardly a Turkish Food, but I wanted to share, nonetheless.



My mother and my brothers fiancée made it together.

We call it Dolma, which means "filled" or "stuffed" in Turkish.
Some calls it Sarma, which means "roll"

Dolmak means: To fill, to be filled
Sarmak means: To roll up, to wrap

The filling we used was just rice with some peppers and herbs. You can add chopped meat as well, I guess.

Especially cabbage tastes suprisingly good when filled and my favourite.

Sorry for late reply. I must have missed your post :)

They used parsley but you can always improvise.

Some people even add blackcurrant into the mixture.

we have the same dish here in Egypt, we call it "Mahshi" which means "filled" (same as Dolma).
It's very delicious, I ate cabbage mahshi two days ago although I'm on a diet and I'm not suppose to eat it but I just couldn't resist it.

My faaaavorite!!! Mahshi in Egyptian means stuffed, so same idea as Dolmak. Cabbage is the BEST!!! I like stuffed mini eggplants too. sooo good. And we do stuffed zucchini but not with meat. just the rice and herb mixture. Also very good.
