DIRECTIONS

  • Sauté onions in olive oil in pan, add rice and add hot water to cover.
  • Cover and simmer until rice is half cooked, about 10 minutes.
  • Turn off heat, add tomato paste, currants, nuts, and spices. Let mixture cool.
  • To prep the grape leaves, rinse in warm water and remove the stems.
  • When rice mixture is cool, place 1 teaspoon or less in center of leaf, fold in right and left sides, then roll the leaf until you have a tiny 'cigar'.
  • Place the dolma in a steamer pot.
  • Repeat until all grape leaves and/or stuffing is finished.
  • Add water to steamer cover and simmer for 30-45 minutes or until the rice inside the dolma is totally cooked.
  • Traditionally this is served cold.
  • Squeeze lemon over the dolma immediately before serving.
