    Satonic Cooks Domlades

    I found a packet of vine leaves in the fridge the other day so I decided to teach the missus how to cook one of my favourite dishes.



    There are a lot of different fillings that can be used but this is the way I used to make them with my nan so I stick to the same recipe.

    First chop two large onions and fry for 5 minutes



    Juice two lemons



    Finely chop a bunch of mint



    Mix this all together in a large bowl with 4 tablespoons of olive oil and some black pepper



    Add 250 grams of pork and 250 grams of beef



    Add 1 cup of washed, uncooked white rice



    Add two OXO cubes dissolved in half a cup of water and a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste and mix thoroughly

    Now bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the vine leaves for 5 minutes



    Remove the vine leaves from the water but save the water as it'll be used later

    Now time to get rolling. Get the missus involved here as it takes a while



    Lay a vine leave out flat, shiny side down



    Add the filling



    Roll tightly folding the sides of the leaf in first



    Finished



    Line a pasta pot with a few of the left over broken vine leaves and arrange the rolled Dolmades so that they are tight enough together to stop them coming undone when cooking



    Add an upturned plate on top of the vine leaves and some weight on the top of that to prevent them from moving whilst cooking



    Cover with the water used earlier, a splash of olive oil and some lemon juice. Bring to the boil then turn down to a simmer for an hour and a half

    Once cooked allow them to cool to room temperature before serving

    Serve with some plain Greek yoghurt, some home-made tzatziki (my recipe for that is on one of my other threads), paprika and lemon wedges



    Enjoy

    Great, really nice, now delete and change the picture with the eaten lemon on the dinner thread. It does not do your knowledge of Greek cuisine justice. Yummy.

    Was she tall and handsome?

    I think on the one where I made kebabs.

    It's basically Greek yoghurt, cucumber (skinned, deseeded and chopped), garlic, lemon juice, paprika and olive oil.

    Superb. I'd never even heard of Domlades 5 minutes ago, now I even know how to cook them.

    Top work Sat.

    ^ Cheers - Give it a try sometime Abe, I would make them more often but I have to wait for family or friend visit to bring me over the vine leaves. I haven't seen them on sale here.

    Looks tasty. Do you reckon another leaf could be substituted or is it a particular flavour from the vine leaves?

    The vine leaves do have a unique flavour, I'm not sure of a substitute tbh.

    The other thing you could do is to hollow out bell peppers or large tomatoes, fill them with the meat and rice (rice would need to be pre-cooked) mixture and bake.

    That's probably because they're called dolmades

    there's a Turkish gaff in Central selling these (veggie version though, cos their not murderers ) so I reckon you can get the leaves somewhere here.

    I used to love Domlades when I lived on Corfu (and when I wasn't tree hugger), you've got my mouth watering.

    They've got vineyards and I've bought vine branches before to use for smoking so the leaves must be somewhere.

    Well done, Mate!

    Never given it much thought about attempting to find grape leaves where they don't come natural....odd to see those delicacies preserved in plastic.

    Guess one can find anything in the kingdom!

    I wish that was the case, but I've never heard of those either.

    Central, Pattaya, in The Loft on the 3rd floor.

    I think there are other Centrals with The Loft as well.

    ^ a kind of vintage one.

    I got them from one of the wine suppliers. I reckon Hua Hin Hills would have them.
