CHICKEN SHAWARMA WITH WHEAT FLOUR WRAP


Shawarma is a middle eastern dish which is

similar to a frankie.

Ideal for a lunchbox,or anytime snack or meal.

I tried the wrap with pure wheat flour ,and

amazingly there seemed to be no difference at

all.

The filling was made with stir fried chicken

and leeks.Took a small portion of the cooked

chicken,and shredded to add to the taste.

For the garlicky mayonnaise I made a vegan

mayo, which I found on the Internet .

That was absolutely delicious with ground

cashewnuts,and no one knew it was made with

cashews,till I revealed.😀

You could add pickled vegetables with the

filling.I added finely sliced red cabbage,onions ,

tomatoes tossed with salt.You could add lettuce

or any accompaniment you prefer .

Recipe for the filling can be your preference,

roast,grilled,or stir fried meat .

Now to my version of home made shawarma!

2-3 cups of wheat flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

dough ( not very soft).

Roll out into circles, and cook both sides.

1 tsp ginger-garlic paste

1 tsp tomato ketchup

1/4 tsp pepper powder

Ghee /butter

If you have ready made pickled vegetables ,it’s

very easy 😊

chicken .
