  1. Place the sunflower seeds, cashews and peanuts in a blender and grind them.

  4. Mix well and shape the mixture into walnut-sized balls.
  5. Place the tomato sauce in a large pot and bring to a gentle simmer.
  6. Drop the balls into the sauce.
  7. Cover and let simmer for about 15 minutes.

You really need to change the name of this recipe, lol... I made these for some guests one night and they literally spit some out from laughter. How about using the word "croquette" instead of balls? Sounds fancier (and less ends up on the floor from laughter!).

Easy. Nice flavor. Great Texture. Went surprisingly well in spaghetti sauce for "spaghetti and meatballs," I suspect it will be even better in curry.
