this is a very easy recipe that you can throw together when you are short on time or groceries. it uses canned tuna; now i know most people have an aversion to canned food, and rightfully so... but canned tuna is not like the rest of them. its actually really good! goes well with rotis, paranthas or even bread. leftovers are good for stuffing toasted sandwiches for breakfast the next day.
This recipe goes really well with rice or rotis... you can just as easily substitute fresh mushrooms with canned ones (as i have done here) and the veggies can be frozen too! its easy to whip up quickly, when your running low on fresh produce in ur fridge! :)
