A very simple meal that takes literally minutes to put together yet tastes incredible.
- 200 gm tube pasta of any kind
- 1 can of Tuna, drained (approximately 100 gm)
- 2-3 fresh tomatoes, chopped into small pieces
- 1 tbsp tomato sauce/ketchup
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 green chilli, chopped
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1/4 cup water (optional)
- 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.
