A very simple meal that takes literally minutes to put together yet tastes incredible.

200 gm
tube pasta of any kind
can of Tuna, drained
(approximately 100 gm)
fresh tomatoes, chopped into small pieces
1 tbsp
tomato sauce/ketchup
small onion, finely chopped
green chilli, chopped
1 tbsp
1/4 cup
1/4 tsp
garlic paste
1/4 tsp
ginger paste
1/2 tsp
black pepper powder
1/4 tsp
cumin powder
juice of half a lemon
some chopped coriander
salt to taste

Boil the pasta as per packet directions and drain.

In the meantime, heat the oil in a pan, add the onions and fry until translucent. Add the ginger, garlic and chopped tomatoes. Cook until the tomatoes are mushy. Add the cumin powder. Stir together then add the ketchup/sauce.

Next add the drained tuna and chopped green chilli. Mix well, making sure the tuna flakes apart and gets well-coated with the sauce. If you want the tuna mixture slightly saucy, add the water and mix, allow it to simmer for a couple of minutes.

Add the drained pasta. Sprinkle some chopped coriander and squeeze in the lemon juice. Give it a final stir and serve hot with a light sprinkle of black pepper powder and some extra lemon slices.

Enjoy! :)
