Dolma (Stuffed Grape Leaves), Iraqi-Style image

This Middle Eastern dish is a family favorite. The blend of the spices coupled with the tartness of the lemon makes it out of this world. This recipe has been passed down in my family for many years.

Time 2h

Yield 8 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 20

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16 ounce) jar grape leaves
  • 2 lbs beef or 2 lbs lamb, minced
  • 1 cup long-grain uncooked rice (basmati rice works best)
  • 3/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground cardamom
  • 1/2 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 4 -5 carrots
  • water

Steps:

  • Soak grape leaves in water for 20 minutes. Drain.
  • Peel and slice carrots lengthwise and line bottom of pot with them. This helps keep the grape leaves from sticking to the pot.
  • Soak rice in hot water for 10 minutes and drain. In a large bowl, combine rice, beef, onion, garlic, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and all spices.
  • Place each grape leaf shiny side down with stem end toward you on a flat surface. Cut off stem. Place 1 tbsp of rice mixture on leaf near the stem end. Roll top over once, fold ends in, and continue to roll completely (rolling away from you). Repeat with remaining leaves.
  • Arrange rolled grape leaves in pot seam side down, tightly packed. Place each layer in opposite direction of previous layer, in a criss-cross fashion. For even cooking, try to have no more than 4 layers.
  • Combine lemon juice and oil and pour over grape leaves. Top with water until approximately 1" below top layer.
  • Place large plate on top, and place a heavy weight on plate (a foil-wrapped brick works great).
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes, until rice is thoroughly cooked. Allow to rest for 20-30 minutes.
  • Serve with lemon wedges or Greek yogurt. Enjoy!

  • If using jarred grape leaves as I am here, remove them from the jar and discard the brine. Rinse the grape leaves well and place them in a colander to drain. (Later in the process, you'll remove the stems before stuffing.) (See notes if using fresh grape leaves)
  • Soak the rice in plenty of water for about 15 to 20 minutes or until you are able to break one grain of rice easily. Drain well.
  • Prepare a heavy cooking pot and lightly brush the bottom with extra virgin olive oil. Arrange a few grape leaves in the bottom (I used the leaves that didn't look too great here and made three layers to protect the stuffed leaves from scorching later.) Top with sliced tomatoes.
