Stuffed Pepper
Bibar Dolmasi


As with eggplant, green bell peppers may be stuffed to form another type of "dolma". Bell pepper dolma is often served with other types of stuffed vegetables, including eggplant and tomatoes. The peppers are stuffed with the same ingredients as the eggplant: rice and herbs such as coriander, mint and dill. Often onions and minced meat - lamb, veal or beef - are added to the mixture. The dish is allowed to simmer for several hours in its own juices. Minced garlic and yogurt are served as accompaniments. In Southern Azerbaijan (in Iran), yellow split peas and spices like turmeric and pepper may also be added.
