This recipe calls for making your own pita bread, but you could certainly save time by buying a good quality variety from the store. But there's no comparison to the flavor of the homemade version, and they take only a few minutes to bake in the oven. Here, the pitas are topped with a seasoned meat mixture that's heady with cumin, coriander, saffron, ground ginger, paprika, cloves, and cinnamon (the makings of a classic curry powder).


  • 1 kilogram pork steak (cut into thin strips horizontally)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (powder)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1 teaspoon clove powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 lemon (small)
