Spaghetti and meatballs sauce

Spaghetti could be prepared in so many ways. Whichever way I prepare it, my son loves it and eats very impressively. This recipe is very easy to prepare but could time consuming. Really, the end result is what matters. So, here we go!


Minced meat
Fresh or dry thyme
Knorr cubes
Garlic granules
Sunflower or vegetable oil
Spring onions


For the tomatoes:

Blend the tomatoes, onions and pepper together
Pour the mix in a pot and boil till there is no water {while the tomatoes is boiling, start prepping the minced meat}
Add few fresh thyme for flavour
Slice in onions and pour in ½ cup of sunflower oil
Cook for about 5 minutes until the tomatoes sauce is completely dried
Turn the gas on low heat
For the minced meat:

In a bowl, put in the minced meat 
Add a cube of Knorr, thyme, garlic, ginger, an egg, onions, spring onions and pinch of salt. **use grater for the ginger and onions***
Mix everything together with your hands
In a frying pot, put in a tablespoon of sunflower oil
Allow heating and then start rolling the mince into balls
Fry in the pan until browned.
Put in a plate and set aside.

In the tomatoes pot, add a knorr cube, curry, salt and taste
Add ½ cup of water and put in the meatballs
Cover the pot and allow boiling for about 5 minutes
Reduce the gas heat but not to the lowest
Allow cooking for another 10 minutes so the sauce simmers into the meatballs.
After 10 minutes, turn off the light.

**Please note, the amount of water used depends on how thick or watery you want your sauce**

Cook your spaghetti and serve as you desire.
