Total Time: 45 min
Prep 25 min
Cook 20 min
Yield: 16 Arayes
1/2 large white onion, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1/2 small bunch fresh parsley
1 pound ground beef
1 small tomato, diced finely
1/4 teaspoon garam masala
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 pieces pita (whole wheat or regular), cut into quarters
Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
Preheat the panggangan to 400 degrees F.
In a food processor, combine the onions, garlic, and parsley until finely minced. Remove to a large bowl and add in the beef, tomato, garam masala, pine nuts, and lemon juice. Season with salt. Mix with your hands until well combined.
Arrange the pita quarters on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Fill each quarter with about 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture, flattening it out so the filling is even. Brush each quarter on both sides with a little olive oil. Sprinkle salt on top.
Bake for 20 minutes, turning once halfway through. Pitas should be browned and crispy.
