    up. Place tablespoon of rice on top end near stem. Now fold top down and the two sides over,
    then roll toward the inside of your palm covering all the rice. Make a firm roll in
    shape of cigar. Lay wrapped grape leaves end to end in circle in bottom of pan, covering
    first the bottom, then start 2nd row continuing in circle pattern. when all wrapped
    leaves are arranged in pan, add 2 cups of water and cover pan with inverted 10" plate over
    sarmas and cook until it comes to a boil, then reduce heat and cook � hour. Turn off heat
    and let set for approximately 15 minutes. Remove plate. Let cool.

    Using same system of arranging in cooking pan, empty rolled leaves carefully and place on
    shallow serving dish or pyrex bowl.* Cover with saran wrap. Refrigerate. Serve cold or at
    room temperature. Garnish with lemon wedges or parsley sprigs.
