Seyal Double Roti (onion and tomato gravy with bread)

Whenever I use to search any information in internet, moving from one link to other I use to end in other place. Hope this use to happen for everyone; like that I came across this recipe from here. The name pulled me more towards this and finally planned that for next day dinner. Made few changes to the original recipe and made it to a complete filling meal.
