What does DL stand for in a recipe?

Am doing something that calls for "2 dl sieved tomatoes" and I can't work out what that means. Probably something very obvious and I am terribly thick.

I'd go with decilitre too - does 200ml sound right ?

its demilitre

But 2 demilitres would surely be a litre thus saving me much confusion
So a decilitre is 200ml? Thanks.

decilitre = 100 ml iirc. It flummoxed me with non British recipes.

Crap cook myself, going on little conversion thingie I have in a cookbook and it says dl is demilitre. Much respect to those who actually concoct something from individual ingredients often enough to be able to answer that without checking!!! I am not worthy, I am not worthy!!!

1 decilitre = 1/10th of a litre = 100ml

Well thankyou. There doesn't appear to be any tomato at all in the photo - so maybe I'll just go with the Jamie Oliver'chuck some in' school of measurements/
