Tuna Steak Biryani

Fish Biryani

What a beautiful, comforting dish this is. A tuna steak biryani, where the fish is perfectly cooked and melting in the mouth. The rice coloured and is flavoured with all the aromatic spices.
I have always been a big fan of biryani; I especially love fish biryani. I remember the last time I went back home to Mauritius my mother had this waiting for me when I arrived home; I can’t begin to tell you how happy that made me feel. However, if it’s made with Tuna, I usually would prefer eating the rice but not the fish.
I have been talking to the hubby about our Mauritian Tuna steak recently, and he sounded curious about which led me to make it today.  Now that I have done it myself though I’ve had a complete change of heart. It turns out that the Tuna I had before was just over cooked. My Tuna was cooked just right 😉
