The concept is the same as meatballs but instaed of meat you use tomatos.
One of the glorious Greek dishes :)

Servings 4-6

4 medium ripped tomatos - purreed
2 medium zucchini- finely chopped
1 medium chopped onion
1-21/2 cups of all purpose flour
some parsely-chopped
some mint or basil ( I suggest the later) chopped
salt-pepper to taste
seed oil for frying

Mix together all the ingredients and add enough of the flour in order to have a firm dough.
In very hot oil, you spoon the dough.
Place your tomato balls n kitchen towels in order to abdsorb the excess oil.

Sorry cape chef for not replying earlier! I have just seen that!

Tomato balls are a lent dish and during the fast period we are not suppose to eat any kind of cheese :)
I thought many times to add some feta cheese but I haven't dared it so far. Why? I fear that they will stick on the pan while frying them!
As for the sauce, as far as I know we don't serve tomato balls with any kind of sauce!
