    Syrinx's Note:

    I can't believe that this student staple isn't on Zaar somewhere, but I certainly can't find it anywhere! This is my slightly more grown-up adaptation of the old store-cupboard standby where you take a can of tuna, a can of sweetcorn and a can of condensed mushroom soup. You can serve it with rice, or pasta, or toast, or baked potatoes...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Chop the onion, and soften it in the butter with the curry powder.
    2. 2
      When the onion is soft, remove the pan from the heat. Toss in the drained tuna and drained sweetcorn, and stir thoroughly.
    3. 3
      Dissolve the cornflour in a little of the milk, then add all of the milk and the cornflour-milk mixture to the contents of the saucepan. Beat rapidly with a wooden spoon.
    4. 4
      Return the pan to the heat, and bring to the boil, stirring constantly.
    5. 5
      When the sauce is bubbling and thickened, stir in the lemon juice and coriander/parsley, then season with salt and pepper.
    6. 6
      Serve hot, with rice or pasta or toast or baked potatoes.

      I thought this was really good - quick, simple, and I had all the ingredients handy. I added a few diced carrots in with the onion, (just for some extra colour and nutrition), and served it over rice. Will make again, thanks for posting!

      A really great, easy supper recipe, using items that I had in my cupboard. My picky husband had 2 helpings. I served it over white rice.
