Dolmeh is one of our traditional delicious foods. It is cooked in different flavors such as salty, sweet, and sour. But the most popular type is salty. I know that Arabs has this food in their own way of cooking. Nowadays, Dolmeh is not a very usual food in Iranian houses since this is difficult to cook and take a long time to prepare, but still is cooked in grand mamas houses. My mom tries to prepare it one or tow times in a year and this year I learned to cook it, too. It was such a different experience!
