Stuffed Grape Leaves Recipe - PHOTO SHOOT

in food •  4 months ago


Mediterranean food is my favorite and today i present you a very famous dish from the regions of greece, turkey and middle east. They called it "dolmadakia" or Stuffed Grape leaves, it has a sour delicious taste , some time stuffed with rice and veggie or rice with lamb.


It may sound weird to stuffed plant leaves, but believe me this one deserve to give it a try, also it is kind of a little bit difficult for a newbie person, but as a everyday cooker it sound easy because it takes time to roll the leaves. I made about 150 fingers of grape leaves LOL. Once i start to eat i can't stop. Anyway, This is my own recipe with my own way, you'll find many other ways of making these grape leaves, with different fillings. I hope you'll like my way.


Stuffed Grape Leaves

Yield: grape leaves
Prep time: 60 mins
Cooking time: 55 mins


1 kg of grape leaves

For filling:
1 1/2 cup short-grain rice
200g minced lamb meat
1/2 cup fresh parsley finely chopped
2 tbsp finely chopped mint
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion finely chopped
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp black pepper
salt, to taste
1/2 tsp cinnamon

For sauce:
6 Cups of water
3 tbsp tomato paste (optional)
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 medium onion
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil

The way:

In a large saucepan bring water to boil, cook the grap leaves in a boiling water for a minute until changing color.
Drain the leaves in a colander.

In a bowl wash and soak rice for 20 minutes, drain. Into the rice, add the lamb meat, parsley, mint, all the mentioned ingredients, mix until well combined.

Take a leaf of grape and place the filling and follow the steps in the photo below.


In a large saucepan, place 3 leaves at the bottom and rows the wrapped leaves.


To prepare the sauce: in another saucepan bring the 6 cups of water to boil, add the lemon, tomato paste, spices, oil and onion. Boil for 5 minutes. Pour the sauce gently on the rows of grape leaves until cover.
Take a plate and place it upside down on top of the leaves, cook for a 2 minutes on a high heat then reduce heat to medium.
Cook at a medium heat for about 45-55 minutes until well cooked.
Remove the plate and serve the grape leaves.

I love stuffed grape leaves. My Turkish roommate made me once. Amazing taste. Sad thing is that it's way too difficult to find grape leaves where I live. :(
