Seyal Pav is a delicious and easy breakfast dish made with a day’s old pav bun in an onion tomato gravy. This is a popular Sindhi Breakfast that works out best with leftover pav and for a quick dish.
Just as we have Bread Upma, where the bread slices are tossed in onion and tomato masala to make a quick dish for any meal, this easy dish is adapted with pav bun in the Sindhi cuisine to be called as Seyal Pav. They also call it Seyal Double Roti.
Bread Upma as how we make it is tossed in spicy sauteed onion and tomato with some handful of chana dal and urad dal added for the crunch. This Seyal Pav is made with the day’s old Pav, and it becomes very soft when it is cooked in this tomato gravy.
The gravy based turned out quite spicy and I should remember to make it less spicy next time. With the lockdown getting relaxed, we still find it hard to get a few items like the Pav. I was almost thinking I will make the pav myself. However, I managed to get hold of the pav and I was happy to save some for trying out this dish. I adapted it from a youtube video and was interesting to see how different cuisines make use of their leftover food.
We are starting our BM#115, Week 4 where I will be sharing AtoZ Indian Breakfast Dishes. This month it is S, T, U and for S, I had other dishes like Shavige Uppittu from Karnataka, Shepeche Polle from Goa, and Soru Chakli Pithe from Bengal. I decided on Seyal Pav as it was easy to get hold of the ingredients relatively!
PIN This for later!

A day’s old Pav works out best for this dish as the bread has to be hard and not so soft.
