Directions

For sauce: Melt ghee over medium heat in a saucepan. Add onions and cook until translucent, about 8 min. Add garlic and cook for 1 more min. Add ketchup and Vindaloo (to taste) and stir to coat onions. Stir in tomato sauce, water, cayenne (if using), and salt. Bring to a low simmer and cook for about 20 min.

For spaghetti & meatballs: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix ketchup and Vindaloo (to taste) together in a small bowl. Pinch bread into small pieces into a medium bowl. Add cream and egg white and knead with fingers to mix into a smooth paste. Add meat, carrot, spices, and 1/4 cup of the seasoned ketchup and mix well with hands. Form into 1 Tbsp. sized meatballs and place on a large parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush tops of meatballs with part of the remaining seasoned ketchup then bake for 7 min. Carefully turn meatballs over and brush with remaining ketchup then bake for 7 more min. or until cooked through. Remove meatballs from oven and add them to simmering sauce. Spoon over cooked spaghetti noodles.
