Crispy Spaghetti Balls

                     Tonight, me and my husband were in the mood for some Italian food, but wished for something different than the usual pasta dishes. So, I tried to think of some new Italian dish that would be fun, and not too difficult to make. And I thought of making Spaghetti balls with Tomato sauce. So, here is my recipe for this unorthodox Italian dish. I hope you like it.

  • 1 packet Spaghetti
  • 1 cup finely chopped Onions
  • 1 cup boiled Corn
  • 4 cups Hot Milk
  • 3/4 cup Refined flour (Maida)
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup Semolina 
  • Oil for frying
  • Boil the Spaghetti according to the package directions. Drain and keep it aside
  • Heat some butter in a pan, and add the onions
  • Saute them for a minute or so till they are translucent.
  • Now add the refined flour and mix it well.
  • Saute the mixture till it is golden brown.
  • Then whisk it in the hot milk slowly and mix it well so that no lumps are formed.
  • Continue cooking till the mixture thickens.
  • Now mix in the corn and spaghetti. Add salt and pepper according to the taste and mix well
  • Let the mixture cool down completely.
  • In the meanwhile, heat the oil in another pan for deep frying
  • Once the mixture has cooled down, add the cheese to it and mix it well
  • Then, shape them into small balls. Roll these balls in some semolina properly
  • Fry them till they are golden and crisp.
  • Serve hot with the pasta sauce of your choice. I tried it with a reduction of this Pasta Sauce.
