Canned Tuna Roti John

Think Asian style French toast! This Tuna Roti John is quick to put together –all you need is a can of your favourite tuna, some eggs and bread. Roti John is unique to Southeast Asia, and is considered a hamburger alternative sometimes. The fluffy hot dog bun absorbs the grease, spices and sauces so well, it’s often a street food favorite at your local pasar malam (flea market). It’s perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a snack to share!
