This is from Madhur Jaffrey's Quick and Easy Indian Cooking book. I love this warm, hot, or cold stuffed in pita bread. It is so quick and simple and has so much flavor!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in medium non stick skillet. Saute onion until clear. Add the garlic, chili and saute for a few minutes.
  2. Add the tuna and stir to break down.
  3. Add the curry, cilantro and ginger and heat through.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve hot as a main dish, warm as a salad, or cold as a tuna salad stuffed into pita, or on crackers.
  6. I haven't tried it, but I would imagine some mayo or yogurt mixed in would be nice cold.

Loved this tuna! My two-yr old even ate it. I thought it would also taste good with red onion. We used half the curry powder and a sprinkle of chili flakes instead of chili so my kids could eat it.
