My mother in law makes ‘stuffed cabbage’. She is Israeli and calls it ‘kruv memulei’. Their is a yiddish word for it that I can’t even pronounce. It’s really yummy. It is cabbage rolled around ground meat and rice, baked in a tomato sauce. I don’t think I will ever dare try to make it myself!
Many people make it for certain Jewish holidays, like Purim when we eat food that is ‘hidden’ - in this case the meat and rice filling. The reason why we eat ‘hidden’ food is to remind us that during the purim story it appeared that G-d was hidden, things were looking really bad for the Jews and an incredible turn of events took place last minute and the Jews were saved from their terrible fate, G-d was ‘hiding’ behind the scenes orchestrating everything!
