About this recipe

Seyal Ghosht a Sindhi style gravy. Wherein the word "Seyal" means cooking only with onions and herbs. The texture of the curry is thick, love the green colour it oozes out and is absolutely not hot hot spicy. I liked how the gravy perfectly blended with both rotis and some piping hot plain rice. That's all you would need to go along with this amazing dish
