Sarah,

Tuna kovakaya ulathiyathu is very nice.

Biren said...

Am I right to say the tindoora looks kinda like a cucumber? What does it taste like? I have seen it in the Indian grocery store but did not know how to cook it.

This dish looks appetizing.

Interesting Tuna recipe. Now, I have to hunt for Kudampuli....maybe check out little India at downtown Kuala Lumpur! LOL!

Tuna with tindora sounds very different and unusual. Huge fan of kerela food for having grown up in the borders of kerela . Was happy to find many of my favourite recipes here!. Following u.

hmm, this looks tasty, and i've got plenty of canned tuna in the house, but i'm unfamiliar with kovakka/tindoora and kudampuli. i've never even heard of those before. This sure seems easy to make though.
