Advantages: Easy, kids can "make" their own
My children like this recipe as they get to "make their own". I like the flavours! The meat is mildly spicy - you can increase or decrease the amount of spices to suit your taste. I made it too hot once so we put banana slices in too ...
The salad, pita, and meat mixture gives a variety of textures in your mouth at once, which I like. My daughter wouldn't eat lettuce or grated carrot on its own but she'll have them like this.
--- Ingredients ---
4 tsp cumin
4 tsp dried coriander
1 pinch of nutmeg
4 tsp ginger
2 cloves garlic
Half an onion
a little olive oil
500g lamb mince
pack of 6 pita breads
couple of carrots
a jar of mint raita, or some houmous, or even mayonaise
--- Method ---
Mix 4 teaspoons of dried cumin, 4 teaspoons of dried coriander, a pinch of nutmeg and 4 teaspoons of dried ginger.
Peel and chop 2 cloves of garlic. Peel and dice the onion.
Fry the garlic and onion in the olive oil.
Add 500g lamb mince.
Add the spices.
Mix, and fry till it is cooked.
Meanwhile shred the lettuce.
Peel and grate the carrot.
Dice the cucumber.
Put the mince in one bowl, the lettuce in another, the carrot in another, the cucumber in another, the pita breads on a plate.
Then everyone can sit at the table and stuff their own pita breads with meat, salad, and houmous/raita.
Summary: I like to try different variations too.
