  • 2 slices of traditional Maldivian roshi bread (or whole-grain bread)
  • 1 can (15 oz) of baked beans in tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup of Maldivian smoked tuna fish
  • 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil (or butter for toasting)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • A handful of fresh curry leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Freshly chopped green chilies (optional, for extra heat)
  1. Prepare the Smoked Tuna:
    • Flake the Maldivian smoked tuna fish into small pieces. If you can't find smoked tuna, canned Maldivian tuna can be used as an alternative.
  2. Toast the Bread:
    • If using traditional Maldivian roshi, lightly toast the roshi bread on a hot griddle or in a dry skillet. If using whole-grain bread, you can also toast it.
  3. Butter or Oil the Toast:
    • Lightly brush coconut oil (or butter) over the toasted bread slices.
  4. Sauté Onion, Garlic, and Curry Leaves:
    • In a separate pan, heat a bit of coconut oil. Add finely chopped onion, minced garlic, and fresh curry leaves.
    • Sauté until the onion turns golden brown and the mixture is fragrant.
    • Add in the tomato paste, mix it well and cook for 2 minutes.
    • Add in the smoked tuna flakes or tuna can, give it a good stir and cook on low heat for 3-4 minutes with a lid on.
  5. Heat the Baked Beans:
    • Take off the lid and pour in the can of baked beans, pour in the lime juice, cook for 5-7 minutes stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the Smoked Tuna and Beans:
    • Spread the mixture over the bread.
    • Or you can even spoon the warmed baked beans mixture and roll them up like wraps.
  7. Season and Garnish:
    • Season with a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper to taste.
    • For a spicy kick, add freshly chopped green chilies.
  8. Savor the Moment:
    • Your Maldivian-style Smoked Tuna and Curry Beans is ready. Close your eyes, take a bite, and let the flavors transport you to the turquoise waters and sandy beaches of the Maldives.
This breakfast captures the essence of the Maldives with its combination of hearty beans, aromatic sautéed onion and garlic, and the irresistible smoked tuna, creating a morning meal that feels like a true taste of the Maldivian islands. Enjoy your tropical breakfast adventure!
