Tuna is a very common fish used in Asian countries. They cook tuna in different ways. Tuna has a commercial value too. People consume tuna than any other fish in the world. In Sri Lanka it comes as a dried flaky fish (Maldive fish flakes)  too to use in all the other cooking to give an extra taste and protein too.

This type of a dish is very good with a special  rice to serve as one pot dish.as it contains everything in one dish. If you are not a chillie lover you can omit chilles from this to cook this adding some extra tomato sauce.

Bon Appetit!
