Yummy, quick and easy Tuna Curry

Tuna curry

I am not a fancy cook, I like meals which are quick, easy and taste good.  This Tuna Curry can be ready in 20 mins and tastes delicious.  Mum often made it when I was a teen, at that stage I did not like curry but I loved her tuna curry.  The ingredients are very flexible, only the tuna, mushrooms, green (or red) pepper, and spices are a must, even then if you don’t have one of the spices, leave it out and it will still be good.  You can also add chilli if you want it to have more kick.

INGREDIENTS (serves 2 very generously with a bit left over to have on toast for breakfast)

15 ml each butter and oil or the oil drained from 1 tin of tuna if using tuna in oil.

1 Onion (or about 4 leeks), chopped

1 punnet mushrooms, sliced
