Method

35-40 min / chilling: 30 min
 

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Grease a baking sheet with non-stick spray.

1. Meatballs: Mix the ingredients well in a large mixing bowl. Shape into balls the size of tennis balls and arrange on a plate. Cover with cling-film and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

2. Sauce: Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the onion, celery and bay leaves for a minute. Add the tomatoes and lightly bruise using a wooden spoon. Turn the temperature down and simmer slowly for 10 minutes. Season with the sugar, salt and freshly ground pepper.

3 . To complete: Heat enough oil for shallow- frying in a large deep pan. Fry the meatballs in batches until golden, then arrange on the pre-pared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until cooked through.

4. Serve the meatballs with the sauce and rice or mash potato (if using).
