Gather your supplies; prepare beansprout fillings first. The beansprout is at 12 o'clock. Dried shrimp is in d fish saucer, if u don't have, opt for fresh ones. If u use big carrot, 1 is enough.

Julienne the carrot. Alternatively, u can cut it coursely, or use a course grater.
Use all the (*) ingredients (onion, garlic, ginger, prawn). Blend them to paste and stir-fry with 2 tbs vege oil on a medium fire.
When the oil appears bubbling at the side if the paste, then its cooked

Let it cool to room temp. About 1/2 h or so. Optionally, u can put a dash of sesame oil for that extra nutty flavor.
Prepare the tuna filling (we forgot to take pictures). Use 1-2 pieces of tuna from the tuna can. Stirfry cubed onions and add in the tuna with 2-3 tbs of gravy. Season with salt and 1/2 sqeeze of lime
