Curried tuna (from the tin)????
Yups you read correctly. Give me hot rice with anything and I would be a happy camper!…seriously!
During Ramadan, Muslims like myself fast daily. Usually when I break my fast I like to have ‘saucy’ and/or peppery food…so yesterday I was feeling for something like salmon and rice after so broke my fast. (You can check out my salmon recipe here:

The rice was almost finished so I was about to cook the salmon …rushed over to the pantry only to realize I didn’t have any! You can imagine the disappointment right??? Especially after fasting all day… so I decided to grab a tin of tuna chunks and try it out.

Here are the ingredients I used…


  • 1 tin tuna chunks
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 small pepper, chopped
  • Half onion, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 lime

The method was pretty simple..and similar to how I cook salmon


  1. Heat oil in skillet over low to medium heat
  2. SautΓ© onions, pepper and garlic
  3. Add curry and water. Stir well (be careful not to burn the curry too much)
  4. Add tuna and Lime juice. Mix,
  5. Cook for 1-2 mins on low heat. Stir continuously to ensure tuna is evenly coated with curry
  6. Serve with hot rice and cucumbers on the side

I posted a photo on my Instagram ( and was surprised that were so many people who were familiar with this dish. Some said they usually include potatoes so I will definitely give it a try another time.


This experiment turned out pretty good! So good that I even had the leftovers to start my fast the following day!

Hope you guys give it a try if you haven’t don’t so as yet πŸ˜€
