How to make meatballs:
Sautee the garlic until softened.
Mix the sautéed garlic with the rest of the ingredients, mix well in a food processor (you can use your hands to mix them if you don’t have food processor, just make sure all ingredients mixed well).
Boil enough water in a big soup pot, add the meatballs one by one as you make them. I use spoons to scoop and shape them. And when they start floating, thats when the meatballs are cooked. How to make the broth:
Place all the broth ingredients in a soup pot/deep pot and bring to boil. Add the meatballs.
