Prawns pitta fajita

Sorry for the confusing name. I did mean to make prawn fajitas but since I had some pittas which I wanted to use up, I decided to use pitta instead of wraps.  :)
With an aim to use up things in the fridge and reduce food waste, I used the ingredients which I already had. I've used feta cheese but you can use grated cheddar. Also instead of yoghurt you can use sour cream.  


For the pitta fajitas

200 gms raw prawns,  shelled and cleaned
About 1 pepper, de-seeded and cut into strips (I used 1/4 of a red, yellow and green pepper each)
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp garlic granules
1 tsp chilli powder (or as per taste)
1/2 cup yoghurt
1/2 a cup of feta cheese
4 pittas
Guacamole made from 2 avocados (Recipe here )

For the Salsa

1/2 a small onion, finely chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 green chilli, finely chopped
1 tsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Coriander, finely chopped


Prepare the salsa - In a bowl, add the tomatoes, onion, green chilli, lemon juice, coriander and mix well. Season with salt and pepper and keep aside.

Prepare the Guacamole

Cook the prawns and peppers - Heat a grill pan on high heat. Add the oil and then the peppers and cook them for 2-3 minutes. Add the prawns and toss. Add the chilli powder and garlic granules and mix well. Cook further for 3-4 minutes or until cooked. Season with salt.

Heat the pittas in a toaster or on a skillet.

Assemble everything on a platter.  Make a pocket in the pitta and stuff it as you like!
