I made this the diet way, swapping 1 TB olive oil for the butter and using nonfat yogurt instead of sour cream. Served over basmati rice, it was a delicious (and easy) lunch for a cold, rainy, Fall day.


What a unique flavor! As written, it's somewhat bland; but I followed the suggestions below and doubled the curry powder and added a teaspoon of cumin (which proved to be just a little too much). Amazing! A dash of cayenne masks the offputting fishiness of chunk light tuna (i.e. the cheap stuff) and adds a nice bite. I'm sure it'd be even better with solid white albacore. Dicing the onions and peppers adds a nice texture. Definitely a keeper for great sandwiches during Lent.


I was delightfully surprised by how well this turned out. It's a quick, tasty, high-protein meal that I will probably make again and again. I like spicey food, so I tripled the curry powder and added some cumin and chili peppers as well. I fried some tomatoes in with the onion and garlic, and added two tablespoons of brown sugar to cut the sourness of the sour cream a little. The best part was how juicy and tasty the canned tuna turned out to be. Thanks for posting it!
