Don't you just love bringing in the food and flavours of other countries into your kitchen? I do, and right now I am loving the flavours of beautiful Greece. Falafel with Tzatziki in Homemade Greek Pita flatbread is like an explosion of taste, colour and texture in one meal.
Falafels are made from ground canned or soaked chickpeas. Spices and herbs are added to enhance the taste of the falafel.
This is just a basic falafel recipe so feel free to add spices and herbs to your taste. Just note that if you are using canned chickpeas, ensure that you drain the water from the can AND dry the chickpeas on paper towels.
You don't want too much of moisture otherwise the falafels will just fall apart.
Tzatziki is an earthy fresh tasting cucumber dip or sauce which is used in wraps, for vegetables or meat. It is incredibly delicious, quick and easy to prepare.
In this recipe, I just blended plain yoghurt, cucumber, dill, garlic, lemon juice and black pepper together. Don't over blend it otherwise it will be too weak, you want if to be thick.
GREEK PITA FLATBREADS
The Greek Pita Flatbreads are amazingly delicious breads which are soft and puffy. They are sometimes referred to as pocketless pita.
These Greek Pita Flatbreads are not baked but cooked on the stovetop on a lightly greased pan. Here, I used bread flour, but you could use all-purpose flour.
In my recipe, I also used instant yeast, but you can use active dry yeast as well, I will give you the instructions on how to use either one.
So here goes, I hope you love and enjoy this wonderful combination of flavour as much as I do.
