This is an easy dish that you can make at home. It has minimal ingredients and the cooking process is not that complicated. Simply follow the recipe and watch the cooking video below for guidance.

Start by sautéing the tuna. This helps reduce the fishy taste and makes it even more delicious. Heat oil in a pan and then saute onion until it softens. Add the canned tune. Make sure to discard the liquid from the can before cooking it. Season with salt and pepper. Place the cooked tuna in a clean bowl. This will be used later.

Prepare the eggplant by making it tender and removing its skin. Do this by boiling water in a pan. As the water starts to boil, draw incisions from the top to the bottom part of the eggplant. Do this 5 times all around. These incisions help cook it quicker. It also makes the peeling part easier.

Boil the eggplant until tender. Turn it over to cook all the sides. Remove from the pan once done. Let the eggplant cool down and then peel the skin off all through out.

It is time to assemble and cook the omelet. Crack eggs in a bowl. season with salt and then beat. Dip eggplant in beaten egg. Heat remaining oil in a pan. Lay the eggplant flat on the pan and fry one side in medium heat.

Arrange the sautéed tuna over the eggplant. Spread it all over. Pour some beaten egg mixture over the tuna. Scoop hot oil from the pan and pour over the tuna. Do this until the beaten egg mixture starts to solidify. This step will secure the tuna and will prevent it from falling.

Top with chopped green onions and pour remaining beaten egg mixture. Flip the eggplant over and continue cooking the other side until light to medium brown.
