Easy Meatball Manchurian

Last week I made some of my Quick Chicken Manchurian, and I couldn't stop thinking about it...  I was thinking about it all week, night and day I thought of that yummy Indo Chinese dish, that was so mouthwatering good,  The fun part was eating It with my family, all gathered around the dinner table while my boys had their own little Story's to tell. I was so excited because my kids absolutely loved the Meatball Manchurian.
Slaving off in the kitchen for hours trying to put a satisfying warm meal on the table isn't easy, but when you get quick feedback from your Kiddos, believe me, it could be so touching (Its like sweet dessert after dinner)
  So I pulled up my sleeves, put on my apron, and got busy in my kitchen...

I thought of doing something different with the Manchurian, but having the same recipe.. and that same oriental taste. "Guess What I made" Meatball Manchurian!!

like you didn't read the title post lol.. Im just so excited to share this yummy recipe with you all..  because its so dreamy soft, sweet, sour and PERFECT...

The Recipe for this yummy dish is similar to the Chicken Manchurian recipe, The only difference is the meatballs, usually for the chicken Manchurian we would fry the chicken first, this time we will fry the meatballs kind of like (koftas). I served the dish with fluffy white Rice..
