Bug'lama dolma (Steamed stiffed vegetables with meat and rice)
You can cook this dish with various vegetables like bell peppers, tomato, potatoes, aubergine, onion or any other vegetables that you can make a hole and put filling in it. You can also use cabbage leaves, but you have to put them in boiling water for 5 min before using, as they are not flexible to fold. Today I used zucchini and tomato.
300 gr minced meat (I used chicken)
2 onions, peeled and chopped finely
50 gr short grain rice, washed
30 gr of melted butter
Salt to taste
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp of pepper
5 medium zucchini
Mix well together meat, onions, rice, egg, butter, salt and spices. Cut zucchini in thick slices and peel out inside of each piece making bowl from it. Cut the top of the tomatoes and also take out the pulp. Fill all the pieces with meat filling.
Place all of your "Bug'lama dolma" in to the steamer's sheet and cook for a 40 min. Pre boil the water in a steamer before putting sheets. You can also sprinkle some grated cheese at the end of the cooking to make the richer taste. After it's done serve with some kind of side dish or a salad. Enjoy!
