Direction:

Frying the meatballs:

Step 1:  Season the ground beef with garlic, ginger, ground chili, one bouillon cube, thyme leaves and onion. Then Add a generous amount of white or black pepper, add some salt and  the oil , mix in the flour.

Mix all very well.

Step 2: Grease your hand and make the meatballs. Then heat the vegetable oil and carefully deep fry the meatballs small batches at time until brown. Remove and set aside.

Making the tomato sauce:

Step 1:  Heat 1 tablespoon of oil and add onion, garlic and ginger, season with pepper and ground paprika.

Add the tomatoes and tomato paste  with the cup of water, salt to your taste.

You can add some lime juice if you want. Then bring it to boil.

Serve your meatballs with couscous, rice or spaghetti. I love it with just bread.
