stuffed vine leaves (yalangi)
 
  500g vine leaves fresh or (a packet of vine leaves kept in salted water)
1-1/2 cup  rice washed
1 cup  parsley chopped
1/2 cup  mint leaves chopped
4 small  tomatoes chopped
4   spring onions chopped with their greens
1/2 cup  olive oil
3/4 cup  lemon juice
2   potatoes sliced
  salt & pepper
 
dip the vine leaves in boiling water for 1 minute, remove and put aside. 
if using the ones from the packet remove and wash a few times to get rid 
of the salt. combine the rice with the herbs, onions, tomatoes, lemon 
juice, oil, salt and pepper. open the vine leaves on a board one at a 
time. put 1 tsp of the mixture on each, fold in 2 sides then roll like a 
small cigar. repeat till you finish all the leaves or the stuffing. 
arrange the sliced potatoes in the bottom of a saucepan, then put all the 
stuffed vine leaves on top, cover with water. use a plate to fit inside 
the saucepan as a lid, to stop the vine leaves from opening. cook on slow 
heat for 1 hour or till the leaves are well cooked. serve cold
