A Turkish food that has many varieties generally stuffed with ground beef. When it cooked with olive oil dolma does not include ground beef. Also, sarma is the other name of dolma if its wrapped by grape leaves. You can use bell pepper, zucchini, dried eggplant, tomato, and even onion and carved potato to fill your mixture and made dolma.

Dolma is clearly a Turkish food but it can be seen in other cuisins with some differences, by diffent names. However, if one nation calls this food as "dolma" then they should admitt that it is not their creation but Turks'.

(even the word, dolma, is in Turkish)

dolmak: is a Turkish verb that means " to be filled, be full" thus, dolma is the name of the food that you fill some ingridients into some vegetables.

sarmak: is a Turkish verb that means "wrap up"
" I have a Turkish friend who knows how to cook dolma."
