Tender cabbage rolls in the leaves of Chinese cabbage. Culinary blog

As for our stuffed cabbage, we set out to cook a very delicate dish, both in texture and in taste. Therefore, for the filling we use poultry – turkey or chicken. Ideally, chop it with a knife, and not crank it in a meat grinder, it turns out much tastier. Since poultry meat can be a little dry, we need all sorts of moisturizing ingredients and we use grain cottage cheese and tomato for this.

The leaves of Chinese cabbage, like ordinary cabbage, must be properly scalded with boiling water. The thick white part at the base of the leaf is usually very convex in Chinese cabbage, it must be cut with a knife so that it does not interfere with folding cabbage.
