Tuna Masala

I love canned tuna. On lazy days it sure comes in handy.. and ofcourse tastes wonderful too. This is a very easy, tasty and a multi purpose recipe.... Multi purpose coz you can do whatever you want with it... either as a side dish for rice or roti or as a sandwich filling...or as a filling for fish roll or for biriyani.... you can get as creative with it as you want.

Tuna: 3 small cans
Onions: 2 diced
Garlic- 5 chopped
Tomato: 1 medium chopped
Tomato paste: 1 tbsp
Beans, peas, carrot: 3/4 cup chopped
Coriander Powder: 11/4 tbsp
Chilly powder: 1 tbsp
Cumin powder: 1 tsp
Garam masala: 1 tsp
Salt: as required

Drain the oil from the tuna and heat it in a pan ( the water will splutter..don't bother..just take a few steps back and stand till it stops)
Throw in the onions and garlic and saute till brown.
Add the tomato chopped and tomato paste and saute till limp
Add the masala and saute till the raw smell goes.
Add the vegetables with a little water and let it cook.
Once the vegetables are cooked, add the shredded tuna and required salt.
Serve it hot with rice or roti.

If you have leftover tuna masala, it makes a great biriyani to be packed in lunch boxes. Just mix it with long grain rice and pack. Tastes yummy!!!
