Make your own pide for dinner tonight. All you need for the dough is flour and yoghurt. Filled with spicy lamb mince and topped with fresh mint and rocket.


White self-raising flour

1 cup(s), (150g)

99% fat-free plain yoghurt

¾ cup(s), (180g)

Lean lamb mince

300 g

Red onion

1 medium, grated

Ground cumin

3 tsp

Ground coriander

2 tsp


2 medium, finely chopped

Low fat tzatziki

cup(s), (80g)

Pine nuts

2 tbs, toasted

Fresh mint

1 cup(s), leaves torn


4 cup(s), leaves (120g)

Oil spray

2 x 3 second spray(s)


  1. Place flour in a medium bowl. Add yoghurt and mix until a soft dough forms. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Wrap in plastic and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 240°C. Lightly spray a large frying pan with oil and heat over high heat. Cook mince, onion, cumin and coriander, stirring to break up lumps, for 3 minutes or until browned and fragrant. Add tomato and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until tomato softens slightly. Remove from heat and spread onto oven tray to cool.
  3. Lightly spray 2 baking trays with oil. Divide dough into quarters. Roll each quarter on a lightly floured surface into an oval shape (15cm x 30cm). Place on oven trays. Spread lamb over dough leaving a 1cm border. Pull edges slightly over mince and pinch ends together.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until well browned. Top pide with tzatziki, pine nuts, mint and rocket.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Salad of cucumber and thinly sliced red onion.
