Tuna is something almost everyone has lying in the cupboards. I know I always do. This is an incredibly simple curry that doesn’t take much time to make at all. If you’re short on time, but really craving a curry then this is the recipe for you.
If you’re not a fan of chickpea then check out one of my reader’s favourite recipes; chana masala. Alternatively, if you don’t like chickpeas then stick with my tuna curry recipe, I have another fish curry where I use cod fish curry that’s perfect if you’re not a fan of tuna. I can guarantee you that these recipes are delicious, and I know you will love all of them, so be sure to give them each a go!
Tuna is nutritious and an excellent source of protein. The best thing about canned tuna is that they last for absolute ages, so you can stock up your pantry and use it whenever you feel like it.
Chickpeas also have an array of benefits such as helping to lower cholesterol and improving digestion. They are also great for weight loss as they are so filling, not to mention packed with protein.
In this recipe, I use canned chickpeas, but you could just as easily use fresh chickpeas which I sometimes do. If you are short on time and want to make this curry in a hurry then stick to canned chickpeas.
If you are using fresh chickpeas, they do need to be soaked overnight as this helps to soften them and makes them more digestible. I would recommend the chickpeas be left to soak overnight.
