What can be useful in shawarma, you ask? Actually everything. Chicken meat that contains a lot of protein (we suggest cooking it as simply as possible – boil it and then mix it with spices), avocados and tomatoes saturated with vitamins and healthy fats, natural yogurt with herbs and garlic (as an additional source of protein and vitamins), and also an excellent source of carbohydrates is pita bread from the tandoor. And it’s all. Too easy? That’s the whole point. The most delicious dishes should not be prepared for too long (although there are exceptions). Spend just 10 minutes on your full lunch or dinner. Believe me, you will be satisfied.
Chicken (red chicken meat (boiled))
Lavash (thin tandoor lavash)
Spices (dried herbs (basil, oregano, marjoram))
- Mix chicken meat with suneli hops and turmeric. In a blender, make a sauce of yogurt, garlic, herbs and salt. If there is no blender, you can grate the garlic on a grater and mix with herbs.
- Peel the avocado, cut both it and the mozzarella into strips. Cut the tomato into slices, remove the seeds and liquid. Unfold the pita bread (if it is very thin, fold it in half). Act quickly, otherwise the pita bread will tear.
- Preheat the pan – it should be hot and dry. Brush with pita sauce. Put on the edge (closer to you) chicken, cheese, tomato, avocado. Drizzle with remaining sauce. Quickly roll up the shawarma and place seam side down in the pan. Press down the shawarma with a spatula. Turn over, when the bottom becomes ruddy, hold on fire a little more. Before serving, you can cut the shawarma in half, or you can not cut it. That’s all.
