14 ingredients

This recipe is from week 18 of my food blog, Travel by Stove. I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Azerbaijan is my 18th stop. Kelem dolmasi can be served as an appetizer or main course, and is traditionally made with lamb though you could easily substitute beef. Be sure to use enough salt to bring out the complex flavors in the filling.
