Veg Pita Pocket

Recently I shared Paneer Tikka Pita Pockets, let’s skip the paneer and try pita pockets with some different filling. This time I used kidney beans, potatoes, sweet corns, onions and capsicum. All the flavors came together just perfect!!! Oh yes, the Tzatziki Sauce was the cherry on the cake. 

You can also try this stuffing in a tortilla or taco. 

I have used homemade whole wheat pita bread for this recipe.
