Meat pita sandwich and tzatziki sauce

This is not the traditional Greek recipe, this is my version of gyros, a Greek sandwich in a pita bread filled with strips of beef, tomato, onion and tzatziki sauce.

Beef cut into thin strips
chillie powder
pinch cumin
pinch turmeric
olive oil optional

Marinate the beef and pan fry in layers till it is browned, crispy and dry.

Tzatziki sauce is like an Indian raita.
1 cup greek yogurt strain the water
1 cucumber, deseed peel the skin and dice small
1 tbsp onion dice small
1 tbsp garlic cloves cut small
lemon juice
olive oil
dill optional

Mix all the ingredients to the strained yogurt. Garlic gives flavour, I softened the garlic on the bbq and added it. Keep it covered with plastic wrap in the fridge till it is used.
Add tomatoes, onion into grilled pita bread before serving.
