Pocket filled with Veggies and Italian herbs..!!

Pita bread is one of my multi-purpose food items. It can be used as any filling you wish for and i use wholemeal version so i can eat bread as healthy version. Sometime i use this as mini pizza base or as sandwich. This recipe i made recently as side dish for friends with some Italian-Indian twists and it came out as very healthy recipe with lots of fresh veggies, herbs, and no doubt crunchy and delicious taste. My friends loved it and it looks so colourful and fresh, try  this whenever you want quick Italian taste.


  • 1 packet wholemeal pita bread
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped Jacuzzi (cucumber) 
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped tomatoes 
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped carrot
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped capsicum and red bell pepper 
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon chopped jalapeƱo pepper 
  • 7-8 fresh green lettuce

In a bowl mix all the ingredient of dressing and than in another bowl put all the chopped veggies (except lettuce  and pour dressing over veggies and mix well and lightly and keep this in fridge for marination for at-least 1/2 hour to 1 hour. Preheat the oven at 200 degree and keep pita bread for 4-5 minutes till it become light brown in colour and fluffy. Once Bread is ready cut 3-4 inches of bread to make it like a pocket shape.
