Dolma is a family of stuffed vegetable dishes common in Azerbaijan, Turkey, Iran and surrounding regions including the Balkans, the Caucasus, Russia and Central Asia. Common vegetables to stuff include tomato, pepper, onion, zucchini, eggplant, and garlic. The stuffing may or may not include meat.

Meat dolmas are generally served warm, often with tahini, egg-lemon or garlic yogurt sauce, but meatless ones are generally served cold.
