Cooking meatballs in sour cream sauce:
Step 1: prepare the pic.
Pour rice into a sieve and rinse thoroughly under running water until the liquid becomes clear.
Immediately after that we move the component into a small pan and fill it with ordinary cold water. Attention: the liquid should cover the cereal no more than 1.5 fingers. We put the container on a small fire and cover it with a lid. When the water starts to boil, add a pinch of salt to the pan, mix everything thoroughly with a tablespoon and cook the rice until half cooked.
Immediately after that, turn off the burner, and move the contents of the container into a sieve. We rinse the component again under running water and leave it aside for a while, so that excess liquid comes out of it.
Step 2: prepare the onion for meatballs.
Using a knife, peel the onion from the husk and rinse thoroughly under running water. We lay out the component on a cutting board and finely chop it with squares. Pour the chopped onion into a clean plate.
Meanwhile, put on a medium heat a frying pan with a small amount of vegetable oil. When the contents of the container are well warmed up, pour the chopped onion here. From time to time, stirring with a wooden spatula, fry the component for 10 minutes to transparency. Immediately after that, turn off the burner, and pour the onion back into the plate.

Step 4: form the meatballs.
Minced meat should be quite dense. This will allow us to make meat balls rather easily. So, a little wet hands clean under running water and pick up a little more than a tablespoon of minced meat. We form meatballs and put them on a cutting board. Then carefully wrap a flat surface with balls of cling film and put in a freezer to grab, and in the meantime, prepare other ingredients for the dish.

Step 6: prepare the onions for the sauce.
With a knife, peel the onion from the husk and rinse thoroughly under running water. We spread the component on a cutting board and grind it with squares. Pour finely chopped onions into a free plate.

Pour sour cream and clean cold water into a small bowl. Pour salt and black pepper to taste here. Using a tablespoon, mix everything thoroughly until a homogeneous mass is formed.

Mix everything thoroughly with a wooden spatula and cover with a lid. Stew vegetable frying for 10-15 minutes. Attention: From time to time we mix everything with improvised inventory so that the components do not burn at the base.
Now add meatballs to the pan, pour 0.5 cups of ordinary cold water and again we cover everything. We continue to stew the dish for about another 20 minutes, slightly reducing the fire.
After the allotted time, pour the base for the sour cream sauce into the container. Mix everything gently with a wooden spatula and cook more 7-10 minutes. Then turn off the hotplate, and leave the meatballs in sour cream sauce 5 more minutes.
