Sehal Chawar is a quick fix meal from left over Rice (called chawar in Sindhi). Chawar can be replaced with Dhabal (bread) or Phulka (Rice). The process would almost remain the same with little variations depending on the core ingredient.
Leftover management is what you learn from the person managing the kitchen at home. Most of the cuisines and households would have their own way of using leftover stuff and that would be repeated so often that it would become a part of the culture.
The Sehal Process
Sehal anything is a process where onions, green chillies and tomatoes are used. This is used to make a lot of meals. These meals can be had anytime of the day.
Here I quickly pen down what I would do in making the Sehal Chawar a tasty fix for snack or for breakfast.
