Wow! This recipe gets 5 stars simply for the surprise factor. The family wanted tuna and noodles, but I had tuna and rice in the cupboard and the oven was in self-clean mode and useable. I came looking for a recipe I could make on the stove with tuna and rice.

At first this recipe did not look appealing at all. Tuna and curry???? Never thought of it before. Well, I made it and LOVED it. DH loved it too. He had to ask what kind of fish I used. It tasted like a lot more than a can of tuna! Both the girls (5 & 8) asked for seconds. The 8 year old only gave it 3 stars, but I think it was because she was in the mood for the traditional casserole - oh, and I added frozen peas.

I made as below except instead of the water/half and half/flour I used I can of coconut milk as that is what I had in the house. I also used 3 cans tuna and added the peas to make it enough for our family.

Thanks! This recipe is a keeper I will make again!

I gave this four stars instead of five only because not everyone in my family liked this recipe. I thought it was quite tasty :) The only change I made was to add a few bell peppers so we had some more veggies in our dinner. Thanks for the great recipe, I'll be making this again for at least the 3 of us who ate it! Oh, and we did add the peanuts which everyone liked.

I really enjoyed this. It gets 5 stars from me simply for being a great new way for me to sneak more fish into my family's diet. Didn't taste "fishy" at all. Plus, it was extremely quick to put together!
