I halved this recipe to use up 1 cup of leftover cooked basmati rice and it was a perfect quick recipe. I modified it by omitting the onion, substituting 1/2 tsp of cayenne for chili flakes, and using chopped sweet gherkins as the pickles. Instead of topping the rice with the tuna, I mixed everything together, put a couple of large spoonfuls on small whole wheat wraps with some lettuce for delicious tuna and rice wraps!

Made this tonight, was delicious! Its nice to have a change of pace and the chili flakes give a nice little zip! My tuna was in water, but it didnt dry up. I'll be making this one again for sure!

In my home, everyone loves tuna. It was hard to find new recipes for tuna that my family enjoyed until I made this recipe. I used tuna in oil instead of water and I absolutely loved it. The tuna stayed moist and the rice was nice and fluffy. I would rate this recipe at 4 stars and will be making it again.
