Chicken shawarma is a unique dish from Arabic cuisine which is favorited not only in the Middle Eastern countries but also in Pakistan, India and certain other parts of the world. Shawarma is not easily available. You would find lots of biryani vendors around but it is hard to find a shawarma near you.


Shawarma making is a bit technical and before some time, there were very limited experts that could make the actual chicken shawarma. Chicken shawarma recipe is based on 4 stages however you can skip a stage if you buy it's ingredients ready made. Such as rather than making pita bread yourself, you can buy it from a nearby store.

I always like to eat fast food but my mother restricts me to eat unhygienic food from outside the home. But now and onward you have made tasty and hygienic shawarmas at home.
