True to science, discovery of great things happens accidentally! I think it applies to cooking as well or rather recipes in my case today. I am not sure how I landed in reading about Tzatziki. Something made me persistent in reading more about it. One led to another and I ended up reading about Gyos. Wiki says a gyro is a Greek dish made with mostly grilled meat and alternatively can be made with feta or haloumi cheese as well. And usually served in a pita bread or sandwich stuffed with onions, tomatoes and Tzatziki sauce.
Reading that it can be served with cheese, or grilled meat, I decided I would opt for grilled vegetables or Paneer. Just to see if there are other players who have already made this and enjoyed, I searched the net and lo I am the last person on earth to discovery Vegetarian Gyro and there was one with Paneer/ Indian Cottage Cheese as well.
Having a tailored dish is such a convenient task I tell you. I decided to read through both the sites and try out the best I can make for myself. I wanted to make both grilled veggies and paneer blend. Made a Roti for the wrap and the sauce was all ready by the time I assembled it. The paneer mix came out so well that most of it was gobbled off before I could even think about it properly. Then I said I would need some for gyro and if they wanted, they can have the gyro as well.
I was making for the vegetarians at home and this being a new dish, Konda had to taste and approve. She liked it very much and even skipped her chicken for this sake.
Today's combination is Vegetarian Gyros with Tzatziki, a Greek Specialty. Its the Day 3 today under BM#56, Mega Marathon, Buffet On Table!
The combination has been inspired by this and this. The pictures alone were drool-worthy enough to tempt me right away!
