Step 1

One tea-cup of rice pour with two cups of cold water. Add 1/2 a teaspoon of salt. Put the rice on the stove. Boil exactly for 10 minutes. Then switch of the gas and leave covered for 15 minutes. This is to ensure that the rice completely absorbed all the moisture. We need slightly sticky rice. Put the cooked rice in a bowl and allow to cool. Then add 2 fresh eggs and mix well. Add the minced meat, a teaspoon of salt and pepper. Mix the minced meat with rice until smooth.

Step 2

Now pick up the entire mass and drop it back into the bowl. Repeat at least 5-6 times (meatballs will keep shape much better). Now divide the stuffing into 14 equal parts. Spread one tablespoon of vegetable oil over baking tray. Form round meatballs. When forming moisten your hands with water. Put the meatballs on a tray. Bake in a preheated to 220 degrees oven for 20 minutes.While meatballs are baking - cook gravy.

Step 3

Take half of onion and garlic. Cut onion to half rings, slice garlic. Pour three tablespoons of vegetable oil in pan. Put the onion and garlic. Fry for 4-5 minutes, stirring constantly. Then add flour and tomato sauce. Stir well and continue to fry for 2-3 minutes. Pour 1 liter of cold water and stir to avoid lumps of flour. Boil sauce, season with salt and spices. Remove from heat.

Step 4

Take meatballs from oven, pour them with sauce. Then put tray back into oven for another 15 minutes.
