Tomato Soup with Meatballs (Kofteli Domates Corbasi)

1 cup tomatoes, crushed
2 Tbsp tomato paste
3 Tbsp canola oil
3 Tbsp flour
6 cups (1 ½ L) water

For the meatballs:
½ lb ground beef
¼ tsp black pepper
½ small onion, finely chopped
½ tsp salt to taste

Take meatball ingredients in a bowl and mix them all using your hands. Make hazelnut size or walnut size meatballs. Keep them in the refrigerator for about 15-30 minutes.
Meanwhile, take canola oil in a pot and stir in flour. Over medium heat sauté for about 3 minutes or until the flour turns yellow. Stir in tomato paste and tomatoes. Cook for about 3-4 minutes stirring occasionally.
Add 6 cups of water and bring to a boil. Add the meatballs and cook over low-medium heat until the meatballs are cooked (for about 15-20 minutes). Sprinkle with pepper.
Serve hot/warm.
ENJOY
