Veggie Pockets

About Veggie Pita Sandwich Recipe:

One day, I was walking through the busy streets of Bangalore and found a small Mediterranean restaurant. It was my first time at a place like this.

I love trying new things, but I was a bit worried about whether the food would match our tastes, and if there would be vegetarian options.

I was surprised to find something I liked at the restaurant: pita bread. I first tried pita bread at Fishermen’s Wharf and liked it so much that I made it at home with paneer filling. If you missed those posts, you can check them out here.

Now, back to today’s story…

While looking at the menu, I was excited to see pita bread but worried it would come with meat.

But guess what?

They had a vegetarian option! They served a veggie-filled pita pocket with mayo. I liked the dish and enjoyed it.

That recipe inspired me to recreate that dish with a local touch. And with a little twist.

To match Indian tastes, I added a little Schezwan sauce, which makes them spicy, and some homemade cashew sauce.

This veggie pita sandwich recipe has vegetables and cashew sauce, making it lighter but still filling. This change makes the dish easy to enjoy and contains important nutrients for a busy day.

This recipe keeps you energetic without feeling too full, perfect for a quick lunch or dinner.

This Veg Pita Bread Recipe is special because I made it during a really busy week. I was juggling work and family and needed something simple and comforting.

This easy veggie pita sandwich recipe was quick to prepare and everyone liked it, especially my kid who loved the colorful veggies and the creamy, nutty sauce.

Serving Suggestion for Veggie Pockets:

This veggie pita sandwich recipe is packed with veggies flavored with schezwan chutney and includes cashew sauce. It’s delicious on its own and ready to eat as is.

But if you want more flavor, you can have mint chutney on the side. You can also try masala chaas, spiced buttermilk, which is soothing and helps balance the spice from the Schezwan sauce. It’s a popular Indian drink that aids digestion.

Storage Suggestion:

Store Separately: Keep the pita bread, cashew sauce, and prepared vegetable mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator. This will help maintain their freshness and prevent the pita from becoming soggy.

Refrigerating: The cashew sauce and prepped vegetables can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Pita bread should also be kept in the refrigerator if not used within a day to keep it fresh.

Reheating: When ready to eat, you can reheat the pita bread on a tawa until it’s warm. The vegetables can be quickly sautéed or microwaved to warm them up. After heating, assemble everything and serve.

You may find that the cashew sauce has thickened, which is okay. To maintain the right consistency, take the cashew sauce out of the fridge an hour before serving so it becomes spreadable.

Pro Tips for Veggies Pita Pocket Recipe:

Toast the pita bread slightly before assembling it to get a slight crunch while having it.

If the cashew sauce is stored in the refrigerator then keep it outside for an hour before assembling to get the right consistency.

For an extra spice, increase the amount of Schezwan sauce slightly as per your taste.

Be gentle while stuffing the pita bread to prevent it from tearing.

Why You Should Make this veg pita bread recipe at home:

Quick and Easy: It’s fast to make, perfect for busy days.
