Potoler dolma with keema | Stuffed pointed gourd with ground lamb

This is one of my childhood favorites you can say. According to Wikipedia the word “Dolma” is of Turkish origin meaning ” something stuffed” .In Middle Eastern and Greek cuisine, Dolma is a recipe in which the grape leaves are stuffed with lemon flavored rice and meat. In this recipe the pointed gourds are stuffed with minced lamb meat, sometimes prawns can also be used as a variety. These are served as starters during lunch time before serving the main course during any festivals or events.

For this dish, medium to large sized vegetables are preferred, a little riper ones where the seeds are well formed so that they can be scraped and discarded creating a perfect hollow for filling the stuffing.
