What is Seyal Phulka?

Pieces of leftover roti cooked in tomatoes and garlic make a popular Sindhi dish called Seyal Phulka. This recipe is close to the recipe for roti upma still different. Roti upma is on a dry side. This is one recipe for which I make few extra chapatis a night before at the dinner time and next day morning we indulge in this simple yet flavorful breakfast. Seyal phulka is so wholesome that it can even be an easy lunch recipe or an easy dinner recipe.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Seyal Phulka recipe

Roti or chapati, an everyday thing of the Indian households and in many, it is even prepared twice a day too! We too have chapati for both lunch and dinner. Weekends have a different story. I love to make recipes using leftover. Be it the leftover rice or roti or dal etc. Few of the recipes using leftover ingredients are such favorites that we make sure we have some leftovers which can be converted into easy lunch recipe or easy dinner recipe. Here is all that is required to make Seyal Phulka recipe:

Roti / Chapati: I have been thinking since long to make a post on how to make roti? This is one of the most basic Indian recipes. I use the leftover roti of the previous meal for the seyal phulka recipe for the next meal. I would not recommend using more than a day old chapati for any recipe.

Tomatoes: Generally grated tomatoes are used for the recipe of seyal phulka. However, I like to use homemade tomato puree to make seyal phulka. Making tomato puree is so simple and brings a lot of difference in the texture of the dishes it is used.

Garlic and other ingredients: The main flavoring agent of the seyal phulka recipe is garlic. However, along with garlic mustard seeds and curry leaves are also used to flavor seyal phulka. Other than these the basic spices have been added such as red chili powder, coriander powder, etc.

Garnishing: Lemon juice and fresh coriander add a lot of freshness to the seyal phulka.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
