How to make Spaghetti and Chicken Meatballs

  1. In a large bowl, place the chicken mince, breadcrumbs, milk, egg, onions, garlic, salt, pepper, red chilli powder and coriander and give it a good mix.
  2. Then using your fingers and palms, pull away little portions of the mince mix, and shape them into balls. Line the meatballs on a tray/plate, cover and place it in the freezer.
  3. In the mean time, place the spaghetti in a deep dish filled with salted water and boil it on medium heat for about 12-15 minutes, or until the spaghetti is tender yet not overcooked and mushy. Drain and leave aside.
  4. Fry the onions and garlic in a wide-bottom wok till its semi-soft. Add in the chopped tomatoes and salt and saute until the tomatoes are mushed up. Then add in the tomato puree, sugar, herbs, chilli flakes and pepper and bring the sauce to a boil.
  5. When the sauce is boiling, add in the chilled meatballs, reduce heat and cover. Allow the meatballs to cook through for about 25-30 minutes or until the meatballs are soft, succulent and perfect.
  6. When the sauce is boiling, add in the chilled meatballs, reduce heat and cover. Allow the meatballs to cook through for about 25-30 minutes or until the meatballs are soft, succulent and perfect.

My Tip:

Placing them in the freezer will harden them up a bit and will help them hold shape when they're cooking in the sauce.
