Tuna Burji(Scrambled Tuna)

Tuna burji/Scrambled Tuna(Indian style)
I have no story for this-we just love tuna/eggs/tofu this way. So,here's the recipe:
  • Tuna chunks: 1 can(5 oz) packed in water
  • Red onion: 1/2 medium sized(chopped fine)
  • Tomatoes: 1 medium(chopped fine)
  • Green chillies: 1/2 or 1 slit lengthwise
  • Garam masala: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Turmeric :1/4 teaspoon
  • Red chilly powder: 1 teaspoon (or according to taste)
  • Coriander/Cilantro leaves: 2 tablespoons(finely chopped)
  • Salt: to taste
  • Oil: 1 teaspoon
  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Add the chopped onions,salt and fry till it's golden brown.
  2. Add the chopped tomatoes,green chili,garam masala and turmeric and saute till the tomatoes are cooked thoroughly.
  3. Add the tuna with the packed water and cook on medium heat stirring at regular intervals till all the water evaporates.
  4. Garnish with cilantro.Serve with hot roti's/naan/as a spicy filling for sandwiches/panini or even as a topping for Melba toast.

Tuna burji looks absolutely delectable Sweta :) I love to have tuna this way rather than in curries.
And reg your doubt about fried rice seasoning mix-It is a yellow coloured sachet packet available at Asian section of grocery stores. Its available in Walmart too in Asian section. Its much cheaper in Walmart :)
