Even if I say so myself, this really was a brilliant idea from the moment I thought it up and I’ve called them pittadas because they needed a name and that seemed quite a good one, hopefully it doesn’t mean anything hideously rude in Spanish or Portuguese..

I had this lamb from the 3 for a tenner deal and I wanted to do something a little different with it, I also had ideas of pitta bread in my head too, so this is a North African seasoned version of chilli tostadas , rather than using flour tortillas or corn torillas, I used some shop bought pittas because they would be much thinner than the ones I make..
