try this(my style)....go to Chinatown...buy sze ngan chai siew ngap(whole/half bird)...bring home...get ready the greens-cucumber,tomatoes and salad greens(op)....and any homemade sauce,plum,char siew sauce,ketchup,wasabi, xo sauce,mayo,black pepper sauce or mustard sauce also can.
Slices the crispy skin and the juicy meat out of the bird..put in t naan/pita, add in greens esp cucumber..dun forget the dripping fat from the bird and choice of sauce...wrap it and slowly put in ur mouth...CHOMp chomp Crunch crunch(from t greens)...mmmm Yummy :eek:

Same as eating Peking roast duck..but more cheaper ler.. :D more cheaper- subs naan/pita with roti canai kosong 60cent only

sometimes i do go to chinatown to buy the sze ngan chai siew ngap for my mom as she likes to eat from that stall..infact she been eating that stall since she was young...

for pita bread, what you can do is eat it with some burger in it or make it with seafood in it..

I would like to add in spring onion, then it 'll look more like a Peking roasted duck :)

One simple way to use pita bread is to make your own pizzas. Buy a jar of spaghetti sauce, spread it on the pita bread, load up with grated mozarella cheese, and pop it into the toaster oven for a few minutes till nice and brown on top. So easy, right? That is one of the few things that i can make on my own.

I make this too. Top it up with a few sliced button mushrooms. :)

Foccacia - I love it enough to just eat it on its own! But I know a couple of cafes that use it for sandwiches.

Pita - this is what my kids love. I make tuna sandwich filling (tuna flakes and mayonaise). Mix in grated cheese (cheddar, mozarella). The pita is hollow so when we cut the pita bread, it make a pocket. Fill in each pocket with the tuna/cheese mixture and toast it.

Variations:
1. replace tuna with shredded cooked chicken.
2. Add alfafa sprouts
3. Add shredded lettuce
4. Add chopped tomatoes
*** Works well with any kind of pita - plain, garlic, onion and wholemeal

Vegetarian Pita pockets - mix shredded lettuce, alfafa sprouts, crushed nuts (i like to use walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, pine nuts), chopped tomatoes, watercress leaves, diced crystallised ginger. Mayonaise and grated cheese is optional. Proportions vary according to your own taste. The nuts and the cystalized ginger creates a crunch in your sandwich.

Add any type of chopped vegetables to create your own variety. I can think of fresh onions, sauteed chopped mushrooms, green onions, taugeh - fresh or stir-fried briefly. Normally, I just open my fridge and see what I have. Can even fill the pita with gado-gado type of filling.

Naan - no idea except of dipping into curries. My favourite is Mozarella Naan which I can find in restaurants. They add tomatoes, bacon bits ..... yummy!
