Golubsty is a classic Russian dish made of cabbage leaves stuffed with rice and beef. I made a vegetarian version of Golubsty with mushroom and rice. I made this for this month’s Daring Cook’s challenge. This month’s host Olga gave us three versions of cabbage rolls for this month’s challenge, one the authentic version, one with fish and the other with vegetables. I chose to do the vegetarian version and made some changes to Olga’s recipes to give an Indian touch to it. I added chilly powder to make it more spicy and hubby dear liked it so much. It was such a satisfying dinner. I added lots of sauce and the rolls turned out so saucy. If you want, you can decrease the amount of sauce you add to the rolls.
The procedure is quite interesting. Usually large cabbage is used but as I get only medium sized cabbage here, I bought it home. You need to cook the whole cabbage in water until the leaves come apart and becomes transparent and soft. You need to prepare the filling and the sauce, then stuff the cabbage leaves with the prepared filling, roll it, arrange in a baking pan, our the sauce over and bake. You can also do it on stove top but you need to ensure that the flame is on the lowest setting as it takes 1 1/2 hours to finish cooking.
Remove once thick..
