Yaprak Sarması / Turkish grape leaves dolma

Selam everybody..Merhaba from Turkiye.

Yaprak Sarması is another Turkish traditional food. We can serve it in special occasion like Ramazan bayram (Muslim celebration after Ramadhan). But sometime we can just make and serve it on our family dinner table.

- 1  kg of grape leaves (boiled and drained)
- 200 gr ground meat
- 2  1/2 cup of rice. Wash and drained.
- 1 large onion. shredded
- 2 cloves garlic (optional). grated.
- 1 medium-size tomatoes. shredded
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1/2 tablespoon dried mint 
- 1 / 4 cup olive oil + 1/4 cup for boil with Sarma.
- 1 tsp "yenibahar" / allspice 
- Salt and pepper to taste

How to make:

1. Mix all ingredients for stuffing yaprak sarması (except grape leaves). Test the taste. Prepare the grape leaves well.
2. Put on grape leaf of the above mixture and fold like the picture. Do same way until all filling finish.
3. Arrange yaprak sarması rolls neatly in the pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup olive oil. Cover with heat-resistant plates so it won't move during boiling.
4. Add boiling water, enough to soak yaprak sarması. Close and simmer about 30 min.
