Meatballs - Home Made

This is a customized version of a recipe originally discovered in a kids cook book in my childhood. Since then, I've been able to experiment with various ingredients and this is one variation of the home made meatballs and really is quite yummy. I urge you to give it a shot, really it's so very easy. 

For the meatballs, you will need -

Minced chicken or beef (meat of your choice, i've used sausages minced as a kid)
Slices of bread cut in to tiny pieces
Milk (1/4 cup) or as needed
Olive oil as needed (vegetable is fine too)
A bit of curry powder
Chillie powder
Onions chopped
Mix in a bowl and roll in to a dozen or so small balls,  similar to when we make cutlets.

Fry them in low heat till they seem crispy and well cooked.

Pasta sauce and spaghetti

Mix with tomatoe puree/ tomatoes blended/ pasta sauce if you have it - in a seperate pan,  add necessary spices and let it simmer until the sauce gets thick. I added mushrooms, curry leaves, parsley too. Don't forget to add finely chopped garlic in to the sauce. Adds flavour.
 Add the meatballs that were frying in to the sauce and let it simmer until sauce thickens.

Boil and prepare the spaghetti separately. Strain. 

Add some parmesan or mozzarella cheese on to the plate after serving.
