1/2 cup of thick coconut milk(add more if necessary)
Cook the fettuccine pasta according to the package instructions, drain and set aside.
Place a large pan or wok over medium heat and pour in the oil.
Add onion slices and garlic to the oil, cook 3-5 minutes until both ingredients turn slightly brown.
Add beans, grated carrots, tomato slices, green chillies, turmeric powder, garam masala, curry powder( in the order given), pepper, combine and cook all ingredients for 3 minutes over medium heat. keep mixing the ingredients as you add to avoid burning.
Once the above-mentioned ingredients are cooked, add tomato paste, tomato ketchup and salt to season, reduce heat to low and continue cooking for further 5 minutes.
Add tuna flecks(drain first)into the pan, continue cooking over low heat for another 3 minutes.
Pour in the coconut milk, cover with a lid and cook until you have a creamy thick sauce flavored by all the ingredients you’ve added so far. this would take a little over 10 minutes. the final product should be a thick sauce that can easily coat the pasta. make sure you have the seasoning balanced at this stage, adjust taste by adding a little more salt, pepper, ketchup sauce and curry powder to suit your taste.
Once the sauce is reduced and thick, add in the fettuccine pasta and combine well, serve warm.
