Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 4 whole wheat pita bread
  • 2 cups cooked and mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup cooked and mashed vegetables such as carrots, peas, or mixed vegetables
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).
  • In a skillet or frying pan, heat a small amount of vegetable oil over medium heat. Sauté the chopped onion and minced garlic until softened.
  • Add the mashed potatoes, mashed vegetables, ground cumin, ground coriander, paprika, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Mix well to combine all the ingredients and let the mixture cook for a few minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
  • Cut each pita bread in half to form two pockets.
  • Stuff each pita pocket with a generous amount of the potato and vegetable mixture. Press the edges of the pocket to seal.
  • Heat a bit of vegetable oil in a skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Place the stuffed pita pockets in the skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  • Transfer the partially cooked hawawshi to a baking sheet and place in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes to ensure the filling is fully cooked and heated through.
  • Remove from the oven and let the hawawshi cool slightly before serving.
  • Serve the vegan Egyptian Hawawshi warm with your favorite salad or dip, and enjoy!
