Sandwich with Pita bread

    I realized that my blog is flooded with cake and dessert recipes….not fair, since these are not the everyday cooking experiments which I undertake.

    Let's change that.

    Let's talk about sandwiches…everybody likes them. Easy to make and generally healthy ( no frying etc.).

    Sandwiches are something which we make at least 2 times in a week for breakfast or brunch….or just like that. 
    Regular white bread sandwiches are common and they taste good, but we (yup, my hubby gave the idea!) decided to change it a little and take Pita bread/Lebanese bread for our sandwich..which is like a rolled up, stuffed with veggies sandwich.

      Ingredients (for 4 sandwiches)
    1. Pita bread- 4
    2. Cucumber- 1, chopped
    3. Tomato- 1 big and firm, chopped
    4. Capsicum- 1, chopped
    5. Red Onion-1 small, chopped
    6. Hummus- 4 tbsp
    7. Olive oil- 2 tsp+ some to drizzle on salad
    8. Lettuce- 4 leaves, washed
    9. Salt-to taste
    10. Pepper-to taste
    11. Red chili powder- 1 or 2 pinch

  1. Take all chopped veggies in a bowl, add salt and pepper to it. Drizzle a little olive oil on it.Herbs are optional. You can add mint, basil or thyme or whatever you fancy. I did add a little bit of dried sweet basil.
  2. Take hummus and pour olive oil on it with little red chili powder and mix thoroughly with a spoon.
  3. Take pita bread and spread hummus on it. Sprinkle vegetable salad on the centre, cover with lettuce and now fold the bread from both sides and the edges.
  4. Heat a skillet or tava. Place the sandwiches on it and then lower the flame. Cook until toasted well.
  5. Serve hot…no need for any other sauces unless you are a ketchup freak…:P
