  1. I made this recipe and is great as it is. Just note that water is 8 cups not liters. Also reduce the misua a bit as it becomes too gooey. Don’t season until you put in the misua as it adds a lot of saltiness. One of the best almondigas I have tried. It is the rice added to the meatballs that makes the difference.
