      Form into balls, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, and roll in flour.
    4. 4
      Heat the olive oil in a large heavy skillet. Add the meatballs and sauteé until evenly browned. If necessary, work in batches and add more olive oil.
    5. 5

      Stir in the olive oil, onion, garlic, parsley, cilantro, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, ginger, saffron, sugar, salt and cayenne pepper.
    8. 8
      Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      Taste, and adjust seasonings if necessary.
    10. 10
      Combine the sauce and meatballs in a large sauté pan or Dutch oven. Add the peas and simmer over low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through and the sauce has thickened and developed a rich flavor.
    11. 11
      If the sauce is too thin in texture and flavor, pour it into a small saucepan and boil it down for a few minutes, then return to the meatballs and peas.
