Asian style pita strips stir-fry

Here is a new ‘fusion’ dish to celebrate the Chinese ‘tiger’ new year 🐯

There is a dish called kothu-parotta popular in south India, particular in the Tamil speaking state. This dish originally came from Sri Lanka. I am using the basic premise behind that dish to make a roti bits dish with Asian flavors. 

Today’s dish combines pita strips with crunchy vegetables and asian seasoning to make a simple stir-fry. Customize this dish to your taste by adding any veggies of choice. I used broccoli Cole slaw and red cabbage both straight out of a bag, so it saved me a lot of chopping time. Seasonings used were soy sauce and spicy miso red chili paste. Aromatics were garlic, habanero and fresh mint leaves. 

Make this dish when you have an abundance of pita bread. Cut them into strips, drench them with water and set aside. This dish takes all of 5 minutes to stir-fry. Keep the veggies nice and crisp while the pita bread softens up and soaks all the seasoning. YIN and YANG 🤷🏻‍♀️
