Preparation of lean cabbage rolls with millet:
Step 1: Boil the cabbage.For cabbage rolls, young cabbage is best. Cut the stump, and drop the remaining head of cabbage into a pot of boiling salted water and cook the cabbage for 10-20 minutes, periodically turning the head of cabbage. It is necessary that the leaves were in a semi-finished state, limp, not breaking when folded. Separate the leaves from the head, using a fork, taking care not to damage their integrity.
Step 2: Prepare the filling.
Step 3: We stuff cabbage leaves.We unfold in front of us the cabbage leaf, convex side down, and put a tablespoon of the filling into the bottom of the leaf, backing off about 1 cm. Turn the leaf with an envelope or tube, proceed to the next cabbage roll.
Step 4: Cook the cabbage rolls with millet.When all the cabbage leaves are full, put the stuffed cabbage in a pan, add a little oil so that the stuffed cabbage does not burn, and fry them on both sides until a golden crust appears. As a sauce, we mix tomato paste with water and spices. In a cauldron or stewpan, on the bottom, covered with 2-3 cabbage leaves, lay cabbage rolls tightly to each other. Pour cabbage with sauce, cover the cauldron with a lid and simmer over low heat for 30-40 minutes after the sauce boils. When the cabbage rolls are ready, hold them on the stove with the fire turned off for another 15 minutes so that they are infused.
Step 5: Serve the lean cabbage rolls with millet.Serve the stuffed cabbage hot, decorated with herbs, with sauce or sour cream. Enjoy your meal!
