Spiced Tuna Hash/Tuna Puttu

Canned foods, i avoid them as possible but sometime i get canned tuna fish for making fish cutlet and rarely this tuna puttu. While going through my recipe index, i noticed that i havent posted this tuna puttu, to be frank you just need canned tuna fish, chopped onions,ginger and garlic, few spice powders to make this easy breezy puttu. This puttu goes awesome as side dish with hot steaming rice and rasam. Sending this tuna puttu to Usha's Seafood Feast.
