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
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!
For the wheat flour wrap
2-3 cups of wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
Bind all the ingredients together to make a firm
dough ( not very soft).
Set aside for minimum 30 minutes.
Roll out into circles, and cook both sides.
For the chicken and leek filling
250 gm boneless chicken cut into small pieces
2 leeks cut fine ( wash under running water)
1 green chilli chopped
1 tomato puréed coarsely
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp vinegar/lime
Salt to taste
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp tomato ketchup
1/4 tsp pepper powder
Heat ghee, and add the tomato,ginger garlic
paste,and sauté for 5 minutes.
Next add the chicken with the rest of the
ingredients and roast till semi dry .
Take a little of the chicken and lightly pulse in a
mixer for 1 minute. ( shredded)and mix in with
the chicken mixture and set aside .
For the vegan cashew mayonnaise
1 cup cashew nuts ( whole )
4 -5 cloves garlic
1/4 cup water/ milk
1 tsp Apple cider vinegar/ 1 tbsp lemon juice
salt to taste ( pink )

Grind all this to a creamy fine paste and set
Adding vegetables is your preference.
Cut few onion rings,tomato (seeds removed),
and red cabbage fine .
Add salt and lime juice to taste and mix well.
Set aside .
If you have ready made pickled vegetables ,it’s
very easy 😊
Now for the wrap
The addition of potato wedges,lettuce,…is based
on your preference and availability.
Take the cooked bread spread a layer of
Drizzle mayonnaise .
