Kapama is a typical Bulgarian dish that is most often prepared in the region of Bansko and Razlog. The key ingredients include sauerkraut and different types of meat such as chicken, veal, pork, and rabbit, while rice and sausages can be added to the dish according to personal preferences.
Some people also like to add plums, potatoes, or beets to the dish. The unique flavors of kapama are achieved with spices such as pepper, bay leaves, and paprika, and the dish should be prepared in layers. Kapama should also be baked in an oven for at least four hours at low temperature, in a clay pot that is sealed with dough.
It is recommended to add a small amount of red wine to the pot in order to get even more flavor out of the dish.
