Meatballs have always been my favourite with or without gravy, I always prefer a quick and easy snack during weekends and this meatball recipe was one awesome experiment I've never ever ever added parsley and basil in meatballs this was first attempt ever oh my its soooo good flavour and taste 10/10.
there are many alien ingredients entering Indian super markets lately from chillies to veggies all gourmet stuff. due to Indian climatic conditions lot of harmful pesticides are sprayed on these veggies to ensure proper growth but the adverse side to all this...our health is in jeopardy at First Agro they do not spray any pesticides and all seeds used in cultivation are NON-GMO to read more all about First Agro visit my blog I truly enjoyed my visit to first-agro-farms here is a recent post on press please click the link write up on press the Chillies and Basil used in this recipe are from First Agro Farms.
