Curried Tuna Muffins

I happen to work in a place that appreciates the power of social interaction and food. We have frequent potlucks and I prefer to bring something relatively original. This time my choice was tuna muffins. Although the recipe calls for quite a few ingredients, the process is not complicated, and the end result - savoury muffins with delicate South-Asian flair.

Fresh out of the oven!
