2. Preparing the Spicy Red Schug Sauce:

  • In a food processor, combine red chili peppers, garlic, cilantro, parsley, cumin, cardamom, and cloves. Process until a coarse paste forms.

  • With the processor running, drizzle in the olive oil until well combined.

  • Season with salt and add lemon juice. Process again to mix.

3. Assembling the Sandwich:

  • Lay out a pita bread and place a generous amount of lettuce leaves on it.

  • Top with cooked meat, followed by slices of red onion, tomato, pickles and cucumber.

  • Drizzle with a generous amount of spicy red schug sauce.

  • Fold the pita over the fillings and serve hot.
