1 tablespoon curry powder

Salt and ground black pepper

2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

3 cups cooked jasmine or basmati rice

½ cup mango purée

2 tablespoons tahini

Heat the oven to 200 degrees.

Rub the tuna steaks on both sides with curry powder, then season with salt and pepper.

In a large skillet over medium-high, heat the vegetable oil. Working in batches, sear the tuna steaks for 1½ to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to an oven-safe plate and place in the oven to keep warm while repeating with the remaining tuna steaks.

Once all of the tuna is seared and in the oven, in a medium bowl, stir together the rice with the mango and tahini. Season with salt and black pepper. Divide the rice between 4 serving plates, then transfer a tuna steak to each plate.

Serves four.

Cook's note: Mango purée can be made fresh by puréeing peeled and pitted mango (or frozen mango chunks) in a food processor. Bags of purée also are sold alongside the Hispanic foods in the grocer's freezer section.
