Dolmalik biber or dried Turkish capsicum is used for making Turkish dolma.
During the harvest season, the capsicums are cored and the shells are sun-dried for a rich and concentrated peppery flavour.
Dolmalik Biber Serving Suggestions:
- First re-hydrate dried peppers in a pot of boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Once cooled, remove the string. Rinse under cold water and add a pinch of salt. Let it stand.
- Stuff the pepper with minced beef, aleppo pepper, mint, cumin, cinnamon, tomato paste and pomegranate molasses
- Then the stuffed peppers are cooked in water/stock covering 1/4 of the pot.
