My first taste of Pita Bread
It was lunch hour at work, someone suggested we drive to the Middle Eastern restaurant down the road. We drove in the crazy snow only to be greeted with the mouthwatering aromas of the Persian cuisine.The Turkish music floated in the air, as we entered the restaurant.
We were seated on the table, first came the the hot spicy lentil soup, then came the pita bread with chicken fillings. This was followed by other delicious food with strange sounding names, yet each one carrying an authentic signature of the land it came from.
Making a mental note to recreate that magic of the soft Pita bread stuffed with the juicy chicken, I enjoyed my lunch, drowning myself in the delicious food & music. Soon we headed back to work with the taste of pita bread still lingering in my taste buds.
Tried and Tested
The weather here is slowly changing .There are signs of Spring everywhere. We could occasionally hear the birds chirping in a distance, the wind chill still blowing cold.A need to have something warm right of the oven was growing strong in me all day.
The desire to make of home baked Pita took over. Here I was recreating the magic with a touch of Methi/Fenugreek leaves to add to the flavor of the pita dough.Kneading the dough and thinking about what filling would go inside the pita bread, I came up with an idea.
The choice of a filling/stuffing
The mushroom & avocado filling was an instant creation of my own making. Something creamy & juicy to fill the warm pita bread would definitely be a winner, I thought to myself.
One can use any kind of filling for Pita bread, meat or veggies would both be great, I chose veggies for a change and it made the pita bread that much more tastier. Read on, for the recipe…
