Markouk sandwich ( Indian twist)

I brought this bread from the Lebanese supermarket. This was very similar to pita in taste, but it was more flat and thin, without any pockets (can't really fill anything), extremely large. It was perfect for making wraps and rolls. But I somehow felt like making a sandwich which is also very common in Lebanese food. This one reminded me of lasagna simply cause it appeared that way. Here it goes...

Markouk- 1 nos
mayonnaise - 4 tsp
garlic - 1/4 tsp

For the minced meat filling:
Minced meat - 200 grams
Onions - 1 nos
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
Green chillies - 2 nos
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Salt for taste
Oil - 2 tbsp

Heat oil in a wok, add finely chopped onions and saute till golden brown. Add the ginger-garlic paste and saute for a min. Add chilly powder and give a stir. Add minced meat, chopped green chillies, garam masala powder stir well, so that lumps are not formed. Add salt, water (if required) and cook till oil separates. Cut the markouk bread into rectangular shapes using pair of scissors. Place one sheet, spread 1 tsp mayonnaise-garlic paste, add the minced meat filling. Top this with one more sheet. And again spread mayonnaise-garlic paste, meat. continue the same method to get 4 layers, now the sandwich is ready. Heat it using a tawa or sandwich maker. Enjoy the sandwich.

Mix the mayonnaise with garlic paste to get the mayonnaise-garlic paste.
