Step By Step Method

  • Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients for 15 minutes. Cook them in a fry pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil till all the moisture evaporates.

    Knead the dough with all the ingredients mentioned and set aside covered with a moist muslin cloth for 30 minutes. Uncover the dough, knead it again and keep aside for 15 minutes. Pull out small balls from the dough, smoothen them by rolling in your hands. Roll them out and keep all of them covered for another 15 minutes. Cook the Shawarma rotis on a hot tawa till light golden brown.

    Assemble the Shawarma

    Cut the Shawarma roti in the centre making it into 2 semi-circles. Each half of the roti is the pita bread with a pocket to hold the chicken stuffing. Mix the salad stuffing with the chicken and place it in the pocket of the pita bread. Generously swirl the fusion sauce over it and serve the Shawarma.
