Canned Tuna Ularthiyathu ( Sautéed With Spices)

Tuna ularthiyathu Kerala style

A catch up is always tough , even though its only been roughly 2 weeks since my last post. I have been so away from my routine , that the cooking , clicking and writing seems so foreign to me. Yes I am experiencing the same , some of guys have already gone through - the blogger's block.

I was in a total vacation mood these days, starting from long weekend , when we had July 4th bbq's , awesome night at NYC, and a beautiful hike up the mountain to freshen up after all the good food and bar hop-ping. But that was just the beginning of the package; N had to travel from his job , so i just tagged along the next day to a far away place :)....

Days,exploring the place ; people gazing at street benches and bookshops , with an ice cold drink pretending to be reading , walking for countless hours through downtown, window shopping....and at nights feasting on amazing cuisines , lifting my spirits to pure flavorful heaven. Ah we had much so fun !

I was like this flower, which caught our lens during our hike; living a butterfly fun life , oblivious of whats going on the virtual world....No Fb-ing , orkut-ing, or chit chatting ...

Today's recipe is particularly for a bunch of kids , living away from home in Singapore , engineering their way to success. Guys hope you like it.
A recipe by accident , this has found a permanent spot in my " Quick and easy " side dish list 2 years back. Always stock up a can or two of Tuna , to whip up a side with rice , a wrap with chapati or for a quick and dirty sandwich.

Recipe for Kerala Style Canned Tuna Ularthiyathu
Total cooking time - 25 minutes or less
Serves - 4 people

Ingredients:-
Canned Tuna - a 12 oz can( i use tuna in water)
Oil - 1 or 2 table spoons
Mustard seeds
Curry leaves
Onions finely chopped - 1 large
Ginger - Garlic paste  - 1 tea spoon or crush 2 cloves of garlic  and a small piece of ginger
Green chili chopped - 1(optional)
Salt to taste

Red chili powder - 1/2 tea spoon
Coriander powder - 3/4 tea spoon
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tea spoon
Garam masala - 1/2 tea spoon 

OR substitute these powders with a 1 table spoon of meat masala powder any brand , plus a lil garam masala for that nice aroma

Directions:-
Open the lid of the canned Tuna around , leave the lid on, push it down with your thumb and drain the water from the can as much as possible.
Heat oil in a non stick pan and mustard seeds. Add curry leaves and fry for 30 seconds. Slide in chopped  onions and saute till it turns brown for like 7-8 minutes. Add ginger and garlic , fry for a minute and add the powders and mix well. 
Stir in the Tuna from the can and combine everything well. Saute the mix for nearly 10 minutes , until it is done and dry and brown. Sprinkle some water in between , for it to prevent from sticking to the bottom.
Serve warm as a side , a wrap or sandwich it :)

Hi, this is a good recipe to use canned tuna, which we love. My dog Lucy always comes running when I open a can (it's a manual opener, I don't know how she does it), we usually make a tuna salad, my next can will be using this recipe.
Thank You.

Hey Sarah, so glad you had a lovely break, and even more pleased to see you back..! A lot of time I too feel like running away from the hustle and bustle of blogging or anything virtual and have plenty of quite times, ahh. Canned tuna is such a saver, elle? We enjoy this tuna stir-fry especially with pita bread-YUM!
