I really love spicy food… and I really love meatballs as well! Yesterday I tried to combine  Italian and Indian traditions and achieved a very tasty result!

You can adjust the spiciness of the dish according to your taste by adding more chillies!

Saucy Spicy Meatballs-Ingredients

First, start creating the meatball mixture which is the easiest thing in the world!

Just combine the following: minced beef, bread , 1 of the eggs, cheese, 3 spoons (at least!) of Pronto Spaghetti, and the herbs, salt, and pepper.

Then, shape the meatballs by rolling a spoonful of the beef mixture in your hand. Beat the second egg, coat the meatballs with it and then roll in bread crumbs.

Put 2 spoons of oil in a pan, add the diced onion until it golden brown. If you want to have some extra spicy flavour, add also a chili. At this point, add the meatballs and fry them a few minutes on each side.

Meanwhile, dilute 5-6 spoons of the Sundried Tomatoes Patè in a bowl with 3-4 spoons of boiling water. Then add it in the pan. If you added the chili before, remove it from the pan, before pouring the sundried tomatoes sauce… otherwise, you’ll end up burning your mouth! 😛

Cover the pan with a lid, and let everything cook for 10-15 minutes, checking and turning the meatballs from time to time.

Meanwhile, fry your favourite vegetables in a pan with a little bit of oil and onion.

In another bowl, put the couscous and cover it with boiling water (the water level should be two fingers higher than the couscous level). Without stirring, cover with a lid for 5-10 minutes. Then fluff the couscous up with a fork. Mix the couscous with the fried vegetables and add salt, pepper, and herbs, as you prefer.

At this point, your meatballs should be ready! In a plate, put the meatballs with the sundried tomatoes sauce and add as a side the vegetables couscous… super yummy!!
