Indian Spiced Tuna Balls (Tuna Chop) #SundaySupper

The horrific shooting in Connecticut has left us shaken and saddened. Beautiful, innocent little kids,their lives so inhumanely cut short.My heart goes out to the families and loved ones of these beautiful kids and teachers who were targeted for no fault of theirs.While we’ve all hugged our children a little tighter,embraced them a little longer, enjoyed our family time a little better, let’s not forget that these are the things that matter the most.These little moments of love with our families are priceless and a blessing.

As a Mom, I feel greatful for my life with my kids,my family,the time we spend each day, the little joys, silly laughs,funny antics all of them.The time spent in the kitchen together cooking and baking.Nothing is more pleasing to the eye, than my kids happily enjoying the food I cook for them.In the wake of this incident,these moments feel so precious. I’m praying for the families of those who lost their lives and I hope they find the strength to cope with this tragedy.

My dish for today is a easy appetizer, that is also a family favorite!My Tuna Balls are easy, bursting with flavor and stuffed with a surprise, Cranberries!Yes, the sweet and tart Cranberries are hidden in the center of each ball and give it so much body.My Tuna Balls have been quite popular with my friends and I think they make a perfect party starter!You can make these ahead and fry at the last minute.The balls are crispy on the outside but very soft and moist on the inside.
