Finely slice both types of cabbage, mix with salt and sugar and then let stand for at least 15 minutes. Then add vinegar and oil and let rest again – for at least an hour!

Finely chop the onion and finely chop the garlic. Add all the spices, salt and pepper to the meat and let stand for at least an hour.

For the yoghurt sauce mix the yogurt with the crushed garlic and the mayonnaise. Taste with salt, pepper, chili, herbs and lemon juice.

To the red sauce put all the above ingredients in the mixer and mix thoroughly.

Cut the salad into strips and the tomatoes into eighths. The onion should be cut into half rings, the cucumber into slices.

Brown the marinated meat in hot oil in a pan. It should be crispy.

Now quarter the flatbread and cut up or cut into the pide pockets. Bake in a hot oven at 180 degrees for a few minutes.
