  1. Place the rice into a small pot with 1 ½ cups water, bring to the boil, stir, cover and cook over a low heat for 6 minutes then remove from the heat and allow to steam to finish cooking. Preheat a grill pan or BBQ over high heat and char the corn all over, about 8 minutes, then cut the kernels off the cobb and set aside.
  2. While the corn cooks, combine the onions, pinch salt, 1 tsp sumac, vinegar and olive oil in a bowl and set aside. Combine the yoghurt, remaining sumac, garlic, lemon zest, juice, a little seasoning to taste and set aside.
  3. Spoon the rice into a large bowl and add the corn, tomatoes, pepita seeds, marinated onions, herbs, cumin, 1 tin of tuna, season to taste and gently toss to combine.
  4. Serve the salad with the remaining tin of tuna and yoghurt spooned over.
