Good evening, Raffies!
Today we are having breakfast for dinner! We are going to the Maldives and enjoying some traditional breakfast, that you can often find as a snack, too: Mas Huni.
The name explains what it is: Mas = fish and Huni = coconut.
The recipe is incredibly easy:
2 cans of tuna
1 c freshly grated coconut
1 red onion, chopped or thinly sliced
1 chili, chopped
1 lime, zest and juice
coriander to garnish and to mix in (optional)
If you do not have fresh coconuts laying around – like me-, you can use desiccated coconut and coconut milk. In this case, you mix them together and let the paste rest for about 15 minutes (it has to have a dense consistency).
In a bowl mix the tuna and the coconut. Add salt, chili and onions and mix well. Add a handful of coriander and serve with warm roti.
I must say that upon seeing the dish I was going to make, I was not impressed. To be honest, it looked quite unappealing. It reminded of cat food. But since I like coconut and tuna, I thought it might be quite nice. It was. It was fresh and delicious. I placed some on a leaf of salad and the combo was great!
