Curry Tuna Cakes


After making Tasty Tuna Cakes, I made them  few more times because they taste so good.

I bring two with me to work to help stave off hunger pangs. They make very handy portable snacks and prevent me from running off to the shops to eat something when I am feeling peckish hee..hee... This year, I am trying not to eat out too often.


I bought two cans of tuna (packed in water) just to make these tuna cakes. This time, I lined the muffin tray with cupcake liners because I got fed up with the tuna cakes getting stuck to the pan (in spite of oiling the muffin holes). That made it lots easier to remove the tuna cakes as it was just a matter of peeling off the liners.


The ingredients are pretty much the same as before except that I decided to add some curry powder to the mix. 


Somehow the smell reminded me of otak-otak and I wonder if we can make otak-otak in a muffin pan. Hmm...perhaps I should experiment.

  5. This is really a fabulous finger food being rolled out from Ah Hong Chee's kitchen. I can imagine the taste of otak-otak as this is very possible with the curry powder being mixed inside. Please do experiment further and if possible, invite me too! I will be you best taster and critic for no fees, owing to our close blog rapport & 'friendship'.

  15. I actually bought a can of tuna after reading your previous blog post. But that can of tuna is still sitting in my pantry cupboard...hihihi! ;) Must get cracking on it soon. This year you're trying to eat out less often and I'm trying to eat smaller portions or order less when I eat out...a good new year's resolution for both of us, don't you think? :)

  16. I saw sweet potato is used in your recipe and I doubt the sweetness flavor can go well with tuna? I wonder if I can use potato instead?

    1. The sweet potato taste did not come out too strong and it was not sweet. Yes, you can sub with potato.
