Khorake Tone Mahi

2 small cans tuna fish
2-3 small onions — chopped up and sauteed in oil until tender
2 medium potatoes –chopped up into squares and fried in oil
2 cups chopped mushrooms
lemon juice (desired amount)
salt/pepper (desired amount)
oil (unless the tuna fish is in oil instead of water)

First saute the onions and fry the potatoes separately and place them aside.

In a frying pan pour a bit of oil, unless the tuna cans you have already have oil. I used tuna that was in water, so I poured a bit of oil into my frying pan and set the temperature to medium. I opened the tuna cans and drained the water out completely. Place the tuna into the pan and stir. After about 5 – 10 minutes add the onions and then the mushrooms. Note: you can also choose to begin by sauteing the onions in the pan and then adding the tuna, followed by the mushrooms.

Add salt, pepper, and lemon juice then cover the pan for an additional 15 minutes. Afterward, you can serve and top with the potatoes you fried earlier.
