PitaNeer



I feel pita bread is convenient food with pockets ready to stuff falafel, kababs or salad greens. You can eat with hummus and dips or make a sandwich. Choices are endless.


I wanted to try this recipe from months but did not get a chance.. Today, I was feeling lazy to try it but I had to take a decision "now or never". If you're reading this, you know that I have made it.


I was thinking to make falafel to eat with pita bread but I thought of trying something new this time.
Its raining heavily in Mumbai and I am craving for Paneer pakora. So why not put Paneer pakora into pita bread with some salad greens, tamarind chutney and mint yogurt dip.. Doesn't it just sound Delicious????

I bet it does!!!!


Sometimes we should take chances. :)
