HHWT Recipes - Mas Huni (Maldivian Breakfast)


Asha Adnan •  Oct 18, 2016


Mas huni is a typical Maldivian breakfast, composed of tuna, onion, coconut and chilli.
This dish is usually eaten with freshly-baked roshi flatbread or any other type of bread actually! (I love them with wraps, crossaint and baguette!) Ingredients: 
  • 1 can of canned tuna chunks in water
  • 2 shallots
  • 1 green chilli
  • ½ cup of grated coconut
  • ½ large lime (juice and zest)
  • Salt (as needed)
  • Grounded black pepper (as needed)
  • Coriander (aromatic/garnish)
  • 2-4 flatbread/bread of your choice
  1. Drain the water from the canned tuna in a bowl and flake it gently with a fork.
  2. Chop shallots and green chili finely and add it into the bowl of tuna.
  3. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 a large lime and grate its zest as well.
  4. Add in the grated coconut and mix well.
  5. Season with salt and grounded black pepper.
  6. Garnish with coriander and serve with warm and toasted bread of your choice. *psst, I'm using a wholemeal wrap!
Serve with sweetened hot tea, juice and a tropical fruit platter for the ideal island breakfast feast!
