for the last 26 years of my life, i've only had tuna from a tin. i never wondered why. i kinda assumed it's cos we don't get it in the sea around here.
till one day a couple of weeks ago, mom made tuna curry, without telling me.
i loved it.
i asked her which fish it was.
i was told it's tuna.
i asked her where she got it from.
i was told it was from the local fish market.
i asked her how come she'd never brought it before.
i was told it's because she never know what's the local (marathi) word for tuna.
mom's been buying fish for atleast 40 years now.
all i could say was "now that you know what it's called, please buy it more often" :D
ps: the fish is called "kuupa" :)
