Hubby bought a packed of masi from super market. I am not so sure what to do with it. So i looked at the pack and adapted recipe from it. This is a quick dish to make, you can make it in under 15 mins. When i looked online about maasi i learned that it is smoked dried piece of tuna. In some places you will find a whole piece of it which you have to pound it. But i bought the pack which is already pounded. So you can buy whichever you like and make this.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
