Manju Mahli works a little Indian magic to give flavour and flair to canned tuna


1. To make the tuna masala, heat the oil in a frying pan and add the mustard seeds. Cook for a few seconds, until they begin to pop.

2. Add the onion, garlic and chilli and fry for 5 minutes.

3. Stir in the turmeric, ground coriander and cumin.

4. Add the tomato puree and chopped tomato (if using) and mix thoroughly.

5. Stir in the tuna and cook for 2 minutes. Sprinkle over the garam masala and keep warm until ready to serve.

6. Meanwhile, prepare the spiced rice. Heat the oil in a saucepan or wok, and add the cumin and mustard seeds. Cook until they begin to pop.

7. Add the onions and fry for 4 minutes. Stir in the chillies and turmeric powder, and season with salt.

8. Add the rice, mix thoroughly, and cook for 4-5 minutes, until hot.

9. Serve the tuna masala with the rice and accompany with sweet tomato chutney.
