I bet pitta bread is something you always buy. Well that's fine, but if you choose to make them at home (which you can do very easily) you will soon come to learn of the magic that is a great pitta. Pitta breads are flatbreads that are also known as Arabic bread, balady, shamy or pita and they are an oven baked bread that seperates into two seperate layers when baked just like a roti or naan.
A fairly similar process to naan making but it's actually more simple plus they always come out soft and fluffy. BUT, If they don't you can always pretend that your intention was that they cook crispy so you can have them with a dip or chutney!
This is a very simple recipe and although I have used a wholewheat flour (atta flour), pita is uslaly made with just a plain white all-purpose flour, you can use wholemeal flour if you prefer though.
In the picture I have loaded them with cooked chicken mixted with a tandoori mayo, crisp iceberg lettuce and tomatoes #delicious!
