This was ok. I thought the flavors blended pretty well --neither the curry nor the tuna was overpowering--and it was very easy to make using leftover rice. I liked the shredded carrots in it. My husband was not a huge fan...he said it reminded him of sushi--since it had fish and rice and some spice. Lots of people would probably really like this, for us I think it's a one-timer--just our taste preference. Thanks for the great idea though.

I really liked this a lot. This yielded four quite large and filling servings, so it would probably serve a lot more people with smaller appetites than my own. :) I followed the recipe exactly as written, with the exception of using low fat mayo instead of the full fat stuff. I wouldn't change anything the next time I make it (I'd use low fat again). This was good on its own, but it also makes a nice sandwich filling (I ate it in a tortilla). Thanks for sharing this recipe!
