1 cup rice (200gr), washed and drained
4 medium onions, chopped
3/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp pine nuts (optional)
1 tbsp currant(optional)
1 tbsp dry mint
Dip the vine leaves in boiling water for 1 minute, remove and put aside. If using the ones from the packet remove and wash a few times to get rid of the salt. Put the onion at nonstick pan with 1 tbsp olive oilstire until light brown then add rice, lemon juice and other ingredients. 1 pinch of sugar would be enough. Cook over very low heat until the rice looks almost see-through. Add one cup hot water, cook until all the water evaporates.Put aside and let it cool down.
after everything is ready and enough cold to be rolled;
Open the leaves on a board one at a time. Put 1 tsp of the mixture on each, fold in 2 sides then roll like a small cigar. Repeat till you finish all the leaves or the stuffing.Pour in 1 1/2 cup of water from the side of pot. Line up all the rolls in the pot side by side tightly, without any holes in between. Cook over low heat until most of the water evaporates. Leave a little bit of water at the bottom, it will go away as it's cooling down. Serve cold..
