Serves 2 to 4
1 large onion, peeled and diced
3 to 5 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
14 oz of passata or tinned tomatoes
1 tsp Thai green curry paste
2 tbsp Madras curry powder (wheat or gluten-free)
2 tsp unrefined sugar, honey or granulated stevia
1/4 cup dried coconut (optional)
1 small can of coconut milk (optional)
1 to 2 tins of tuna ( 1 tin per 2 persons)

Heat oil and soften onions for 5 to 10 minutes.
Next, add all ingredients bar the coconut milk (if using) and tuna. Stir well, bring to the boil, then simmer for 30 minutes.
