shoe - I don't like curry so that is why I say I don't like Indian food - can't get passed the smell.
My grandmother (as were all my grandparents) was from the Naples area. She always put raisins in the meatballs. My sibs & I loved them however my mother didn't so she left them out.
I like my meatballs made of beef, pork & veal and simmered slowly in sauce until they are tender & delicious. Guess I'm just old-fashioned that way. People who have had mine say they are the best the ever had.
