Every week I look forward to the sweet , tangy, gooey flavors of Yebrat on the Friday night table. The meat and rice filling is infused with spices and rolled tightly to perfection inside a grape leaf . This task is easier said than done. I always dreaded rolling yebrat because I could never get them all to look like “soldiers in a tray” (to quote my mother). Now, a new gadget imported directly from the bazaars in Turkey has arrived in the heart of Brooklyn.
This gadget was almost impossible to find. I searched for months and months by calling all of these Middle Eastern specialty stores around the country.
It finally arrived! After a few minutes of trying to understand the Turkish instructions and diagrams it comes with, I figured out how to roll the yebra. It was amazing!!!! In seconds it rolled the grape leaf as tight as it can be. I am a perfectionist and the best part is they all came out the same width and length.
This yebra roller has 3 levels of thicknesses to chose from depending on the type of food you are rolling. It also works with
stuffed cabbage, spring rolls, meat filled cigars or anything else that rolls into that shape. Unless you’re planning a visit to the Turkish Bazaar, call to get this gadget today. Price $25. If you order before Passover, $20. Call
