Home- Made Shawarma !!!


I had an amazing week  with family and did special part of me that is cooking. Yesterday was one such day where I had no important work, weather was brilliant , so I thought of cooking. Its therapeutic for me . Whenever I feel aimless, leading no where, I get a reason to smile seeing my kitchen . I tried our very favourite (I am specific about my twosome) dish Shawarma . My recipe is quick , simple and easy to arrange. No grilling , no Tandoors required to season chicken In this one. So no going to turkish delight joints around your home. Enjoy the Turkish food right on your couch watching your favourite football match. I did this and felt amazing. Try It !!!

Methods :  Firstly mix all the ingredient for dough and keep it aside wrapped in a moist cotton cloth for around two hours. Once done its time to marinate the chicken with cardamom powder, salt, garlic paste, cinnamon powder and pepper powder. Keep the chicken with marination for about 30 minutes .

Dry the chicken until the milk and cheese mixture just coats the chicken pieces well and not very liquid. Add in onion slices and bell pepper slices cook for another minutes, put off the flame  and cool it until they warm. For wraps just make  dough balls equal portions and with help of a rolling pin make a flat bread . Bake it from both sides on a flat pan or Tawa like a chapati. Once the flat breads are ready, take equal portions of Shawarma filling top it up with egg less mayo and bit of pepper powder and wrap it under an aluminium foil. And we are ready to taste the popular Turkish food worldwide.
