Cabbage rolls…growing up my Croatian Mom used to make these in huge batches because we’d eat on them for days. Yes, they get better as they hang out overnight much like pasta sauce and soups! I’d watch as Mom worked on the kitchen table deftly rolling the meat mixture in the wilted cabbage leaves then securing expertly with a toothpick~~it was if she was performing surgery as she would ‘sew’ together the parts of the leaf so as to keep the meat tightly bound. In Croatian they’re known as ‘Sarma’, so in memory of my Mom they become ‘sarma kata croatian cabbage rolls.’
South Indian cuisine has its own charm. I havent made the aforementioned statement just because i am a South Indian. When one gives a little thought to the ways of eating in South India, the realisation that the need to cook vegan or gluten free meals come to an end very quickly. And that too in a delicious way. Because a majority of the south Indian cuisine is predominantly vegan and gluten free.
