How to make delicious soup with meatballs

Soup with meatballs - one of the easiest first dishes. This is because the meatballs boil quickly enough and there is no need to collect foam from the broth. But very often the meatballs fall apart under the influence of high temperature. This problem is very easy to solve by frying.
