Prepare the sauce separately. Pour flour into a bowl and add a small amount of water at room temperature to it. Mix everything well so that there are no lumps left. Next, we introduce tomato paste, sugar and a pinch of salt. Mix everything well and dilute with water to the desired consistency. Pour the meatballs in a saucepan with this sauce. Put on the stove and bring to a boil, add bay leaf. Simmer over low heat for about 30 minutes.
For minced meat, it is best to take 2 types of meat - beef and pork, a thin layer of fat will give the meatballs a pleasant juiciness.
Minced meat is divided into small pieces of approximately the same size, give them the desired shape, roll in flour and lay out on the table.
Before frying, the balls are rolled again in flour. Such a double breading will make the crispy crust denser and the meatballs will not fall apart in the sauce.
In small batches, the products are placed in a frying pan with hot oil. Moreover, the layer of oil should be such that the meatballs are immersed in it by about a quarter, that is, about 1 cm.
