The whole wheat pita bread are similar to Indian roti. Just that they are made using yeast so, they get fluffy on baking. When cut into two, these oblong breads are opened to make pita pockets. Pita pockets can be stuffed with various ingredients like hummus, pickled vegetables, falafel etc,. to make wholesome starters.

You can even cut pita bread into long strips, brush with herbed butter and bake them to make lip-smacking Herbed Pita Strips . Lavash is another Mediterranean delight made by baking plain flour triangles till crisp.

Appetizers like Spinach Tahini Wraps and Paneer and Broken Wheat Patties in Whole Wheat Pita Pocket are healthy. You can munch upon them guilt-free.

The rice dishes make use of rich ingredients like saffron. Served with Mixed Vegetable Curry, the Saffron Rice offers an exquisite experience, which you will relish and remember forever. Broken wheat is used to make a traditional salad called Tabbouleh, which is healthy and at the same time very tasty as well.

Small pieces of pita bread are also added to dishes like the fattoush salad, mixed vegetable curry to perk up the texture.
