This is such a delicious cheesy tuna sandwich, so flavourful and filling. Perfect for a quick lunch. All you need is few ingredients like canned Tuna, mayonnaise, cheese, some herbs for flavouring and in a jiffy itis done. You can serve with some French fries or wafers.(chips)


Burger Buns .... 2 (or as required) 
Canned Tuna  ...... 4 tbsps
Mayonnaise ......... 1 tbsp
Cheese ................. 4 tbsps (grated)
Tomato ketchup ..... 1 tbsp
Celery seeds .......... 1/4 tsp
Onion ..................... 2 tbsps (finely chopped)
Chilli flakes ........... 1 tsp (or as per your liking)
Butter ..................... as needed


1. Mix all the ingredients except butter in a bowl.
2. Slice the burger buns. Spread some butter on them.
3. Spoon the mixture on the bottom slice of the burger. Spread some butter on the other slice as well.
4. Grill them until done. Towards the end you can add some more grated cheese on top if you like them more cheesy.
5. Serve them immediately.

1. You also replace the buns with bread slices.
2. I have used celery seeds. You may also used finely chopped fresh celery if available.
3. Spice level can be adjusted to your liking and you may add finely chopped green chillies also.
4. Pizza seasoning also tastes very good for variation.

This recipe is part of the "A-Z Recipe Challenge" in a facebook group wherein we bloggers come together and choose  key ingredients alphabetically to make and post a dish every month. The alphabet of the month is T and I chose to make Tuna Melt which I had been planning since a long time.
