Tuna Fish Masala

Tuna fish tin - 1
onion - 1 (finely chopped)
tomato - 1 (small finely chopped)
salt to taste
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
red chilli powder - 1 tsp
corriander leaves - a handful
ginger garlic paste - 4 - 5 tsp

- this is a store bought tin fish
- it doenst need to be tuna, you can buy anything
- make sure you dont buy a oil base tin as it will take away all the flavours
- open the box, drain away all the liquid
- add water to this and leave it aside for 10 mins
- then just remove the water
- do not try to wash that as it wil break very easily
- add oil in a pan
- add the onions and fry till golden brown
- add the ginger garlic paste and tomatoes and fry
- when they are fully smashed, add salt, red chilli powder and turmeric powder
- add the corriander leaves
- now when the raw smell is gone add the fish and mix well
- allow that to cook in a closed pan
- and allow to get the caramalisation
- serve with rice or roti's

This is a wonder ful side dish. Taught to me by my Aunty.
The earlier version using steamed fish is here:
So if you dont have a tin fish then prepre this way.. the taste would be a little different.. yet tasty
