Pita bread sandwich
When it comes to sandwiches arab cuisine have so many delicious varieties of it. The sandwich recipe i'm sharing below is basically inspired by two very famous sandwiches arayes(grilled Pita with minced meat) and mushakal(with falafel and mix vegetables).
My twist in this sandwich is that I'm using two dips inside the sandwich with grill chicken strips.
The first dip happens to be my favorite and probably the greatest gift to world given by arab cuisine - HUMMUS
The second dip is mix of thick yoghurt with cucumber and lemon juice.
Imagine a scrumptious bite of a sandwich with goodness of hummus, yoghurt and grill chicken, just irresistible and I'm sure it will be a big hit on your iftar table. It would ideal for breakfast or lunch box as well.
