Hamir dolma (Dough rolls with meat and rice)
"Hamir dolma" is one other kind of dolma's in Uzbek cuisine. It is relatively new meal. Make sure that you roll out the dough very thinly as it will be more tender to bite. If the dough is thick then it will be hard to bite it:)
1 tsp of salt
70 ml of water
Plain flour as needed
300 gr of minced meat
2 onions,peeled and finely chopped
70 gr of short grained rice
40 gr of butter
Salt to taste
1 tsp of ground coriander
Half a tsp of ground pepper
Sour cream for topping
Make the medium hard dough from egg, salt, water and flour. Cover it and let it rest.
Put rice in cold water (about 350 ml) and cook until half ready. Drain all the water. Set aside. Melt the butter and fry onions until golden color, add in salt and spices to the onion. Take out and blend fried onions in food processor. Now mix minced meat, fried and mashed onions and rice together.
Rol out the dough and cut 4x4 inch squares. Put 1 tbsp of filling and roll tightly.
Place all "Hamir dolma"s in to the greased sheets of steamer. Place sheets on to the boiling water and cook for 45 min. Then take from the heat, serve topping with sour cream. Sometimes you can top it with fried tomatoes and onions, if you like. You can change toppings according to your taste. Just don't forget enjoy this meal:)
