This is my first very dish at my new house.

If you follow me on my social media platforms, you will notice I was a quite excited to getting a ” new house to call home” and currently am in a happy place. More details for another article.

Yesterday, I managed to prepare a special dish that I wasn’t quite sure how it would turn out to be, thought the outcome was delish.

Method 1:

Preparing the cabbage.

1. Boil a pot of water for about 10 mins, remove the full leaves of the cabbage and immerse them whole into the boiled water.

2. Leave them in for about 3 mins, then remove and place them on a chopping board to drain water and cool off. {The water is not to cook them, but to make them soft but not mushy – for easy rolling}
