Stuffed cabbage rolls are usually combined with some kind of cereal. This makes it very juicy and holds its shape well. But if you put rice in the meat, it is best to choose round rice because it does not crumble.

The idea of cooking perfect juicy cabbage rolls with round rice was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Svitlana with the nickname bonitavkusnoo. Add starch to the gravy to make it thick enough not to fall apart.
