I followed this recipe to the letter. I needed more water and more tomato sauce than suggested. About double the quantities of each. I think the amount of rice used was too much, too. As far as rolling the grape leaf, place the cut stem end toward you and the tip away from you. Roll away from you first, then fold the sides in, and finally finish up the dolma by rolling away from you. The tip will rest like a croissant tip: wrapped over and close. Also, remember that you need to make room for rice expansion. I suggest starting out the roll with a chopstick. When you are ready to fold the sides in, take the chopstick out, or whatever you use, out and then finish up the roll. I think by decreasing the amount of rice, the taste will be less diluted. It was pretty bland.
