I really enjoyed this sandwich for lunch today. It was a bit like coronation chicken (but with tuna, obviously) which is a dish I really enjoy but the basil was something I never would have thought to add and it gave it a different lift. I used a medium curry powder because I am a spice wimp and it was all well balanced for my taste buds.

Wonderful flavors, easy to put together! This made us a wonderful lunch. I used hot Madras curry powder and the recipe provided a filling for 3 small whole wheat pita's Many thanks for this recipe Toni!

I'll be honest - I used this recipe as more of an inspiration than anything. I needed something interesting to do with tuna for my lunch today and when I saw this decided the concept was perfect, but I did make a good few amendments. Basically I have a personal dislike for celery so I skipped that altogether, and also I'm noy a massive fan of sweet fruity stuff mixed with savory so I skipped the currants and apple too. We didn't have any lettuce or basil in and my other half finished the pitta breads off yesterday evening it turns out, so I ended up serving on vogels wholemeal linseed bread instead smf it came out really nice. Very simple, easy and very tasty. I always love the combinaton of curry and lime so I knew I'd be onto a winner. I'll definitely be having this again - it's a great, healthy lunch and a fantastic way to spice up tuna from your usual tuna mayo / tuna sweetcorn mayo. Thanks for yet another fab recipe Toni!

A wonderful blending of flavors! I used lemon juice and zest instead of the lime and since I this was going to be sitting overnight, I took your advise and decreased the curry powder to 3/4 teaspoon. This makes a nice lunch for 2. I used a mixture of baby greens to line the pita bread so that the mixture didn't soak through and packed them for a brown bag lunch. Had this along with some fresh baby carrots.
