Canned goods are something I normally try to avoid. But when I happened to see the can of Wild Albacore Tuna at Costco, I felt that I had to give it a try. And it was worth it. It did not have any canned food taste and once the final dish is made you will not guess that the tuna came from a can.

- Now add the turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder, fennel powder, and garam masala and saute for 3-5 minutes.
- Add the canned tuna and mash it a bit and mix well with the masala. The can I used had very little water to no water. So I did not drain any water.
