    Default Chicken shawarma


    Pita bread-3 ( I used store brought ones)

    Marinade for chicken
    Chicken (boneless) - 1 lb
    Spices-cinnamon-1 inch piece, clove-2 nutmeg- a small piece,
    black pepper- 1/2 tsp, cardomon-1,cumin a pinch..Make this into a fine powder
    (you can substitute this with Curry powder)
    chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
    Sumac- 1/2 tsp
    garlic paste- 1/2 tsp
    olive oil- 2 tsp
    Salt and few drops of lemon juice.

    To Make Sauce
    Tahini- 1/2 cup
    Yogurt- 3 tbs
    salt to taste
    lemon juice- 1/2 lemon
    ( or you can use a combination of mayo,yogurt
    and lemon juice)

    For garnish
    Onion- 1/2 finely chopped
    Tomato -1 finely chopped
    Chopped coriander or parsley- a hand full
    Cucumber pickle or any vegetable pickle (optional)


    Cut chicken pieces into thin strips.Mix all ingredients listed under chicken marinade and keep the chicken marinated for at least an hour. For best results marinate in refrigerator for at least six hours.
    Using a mixer or a food processor combine all ingredients listed under sauce into a uniform mixture. You can also add one pod of garlic for extra flavor.

    Heat two tsp of olive oil in a pan and fry chicken till it is cooked. This will take about six to eight minutes. Allow to cool.

    For garnish chop onions, tomatoes and parsley and also thinly slice pickles.
    Now to assemble, place pita bread flat on a plate and spread a little of the sauce. Place a little of chopped vegetables,pickle and the cooked chicken . Drizzle a little bit of sauce and tightly roll it.Cover with foil and place it on the hot pan so that it gets a little warmed up..Serve
