Mix together all the kefta ingredients, except the oil. Make four slightly flattened sausage-shaped patties (length of a pita).

In a skillet, heat the oil and cook the kefta patties until the meat reaches 71°C. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.

Do not open the pitas. Simply spread the tzatziki and veggies on top, add the kefta patties, and roll up the pitas.
