How to Make Shawarma At Home

Follow the steps below to make your favourite shawarma from your house without hassles:

Step 1: Chicken Preparation

Wash your chicken thoroughly and drain its excess water. In the meantime, heat the grill at medium-high temperature. Prepare the chicken for marination once it is moist.

Step 2: Marination Process

Get a bowl and mix all the ingredients meant for marination. The choice of spices is open – add your preferred seasonings. As soon as you have mixed the ingredients appropriately, rub it on the chicken pieces. It is best to use your hand instead of a spoon to spread the marination mixture for the best results possible.

Step 3: Sauce Preparation

Mix yogurt with sesame paste, garlic, and salt with a whipper. Grill or barbecue the chicken pieces until they are well cooked. You can allow the chicken to turn golden, depending on your preference.

Step 4: Rolling the Chicken

Layer the pita bread with the sauce. Then add vegetables and cooked chicken on the pita bread. Roll the pita bread with precision to avoid leaving any rough edges.

Step 5: Serve the Shawarma

Your shawarma is ready. You can serve it with green chutney and yogurt sauce. Enjoy your shawarma.
