What to do:

Cut tomatoes into thick slices and arrange them on a flat baking tray. In a bowl, add the canned tuna in olive oil, cayenne pepper, diced onions and garlic ginger paste.

Sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese, ensuring each tomato slice and tuna has a cheese topping. Sprinkle some salt on top and bake in an oven at 200 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes.

You may have a little bit of liquid in the pan. That’s absolutely fine, just ensure the tomatoes don’t mash. You want to be able to pick a slice and enjoy the flavour. Garnish with some fresh coriander leaves and serve it as a starter or meal.
