Tuna Pita Pockets With an Indian Twist !!

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Seeprats

I originally found this recipe in a Indian cookbook by Shehzad Hussain but this version has a few modifications to suit my family's tastes. It serves as a quick and light dinner/snack. For a truly Indian twist,you can substitute tzatziki sauce with freshly prepared Cucumber Raita.

I made these as described, but served them on thin whole grain buns. They were good, but I was surprised that the fresh spices I used didn't result in more overall flavor. But now I've got my eye on your chutney and relish recipes... they look delish! Thanks for posting, Seeprats. :o)
