Lamb Pitta Toastie

Crispy pitta breads oozing with a spiced meaty filling

Hari says

A delicious spiced lamb pitta toastie that makes a great lunch time dish when served up with a fresh crisp salad and some mango kachumber. This has to be one of my favourite sandwich fillings.

I made this instead of making some kebabs one day by just spicing the mince and smeared it inside some pitta breads and cooked it on a griddle pan. This toasts the pitta and the juices from the meat and spices seep through making the whole thing irresistible. 

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 400g minced lamb,
  • 1 medium onion, very finely diced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • twist of black pepper
  • 1 chilli, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp red chilli powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds, crushed
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • Handful coriander, finely chopped
  • 4 pitta breads
  • 8 slices of chedder cheese


  1. Using a fork, mix lamb, onion, coriander, cumin, salt, pepper, in a large bowl. Cover and chill for about 20 minutes.
  2. Prepare the griddle pan by smearing on a little oil with some kitchen roll. Then begin to heat to a medium heat.
  3. Open each pitta pocket by cutting along one side.
  4. With a spoon fill each pitta with the spiced lamb. Make sure you spread it right to the edges. Press the pitta closing it up.
  5. Grill the pitta breads until the filling is cooked through and bread is crisp, about 5 minutes per side.
