Pitta bread to go with spicy carrot and chickpeas

Am still happily obsessed with Hugh FW’s River Cottage Veg book, despite recent additions to cookbook library (it is not quite a library but working towards that) and one of the recipes I’ve wanted to make for a while is a simple spicy carrot and chickpea dish to stuff pitta breads with. It was the combination of cumin, orange zest, hot smoked paprika and carrots that appealed. Since I was back early from work yesterday, thought I could just about make the pitta breads + the carrots before starving to death (usually by 8pm). Here they are, ‘resting’ with carrots in the background:

Hugh FW’s basic dough recipe is an interesting one, mixing plain and strong white flours and I think next time, I’d do strong white and wholemeal mix. Definitely making these again and the spicy carrots too.
