What is Shawarma?

Here is brief information about shawarma: It is a dish of chicken cooked over a rod which is rotating continuously. Chicken is before slit and cut from different places to add spices to it. Shawarma dish is also sometimes made with lamb, beef or veil meats. It comes with a unique cooking style in which meat is placed on a vertical rotating spit which is then grilled for whole of the day. Meat slices are taken from the spit and remaining meat is kept heated and the process goes on.

1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless Chicken thighs or breasts (thinly cut)
1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup Vinegar
2 Cloves Garlic, crushed
1 Teaspoon pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Cardamom pods
1 Teaspoon allspIce
juIce from 1 Lemon
1 cup tahini
2 Cloves Garlic, crushed
1/4 cup Lemon juIce
2 tablespoons yogurt
8 loaves of pita Bread or 4 large
thinly slIce Cucumbers
thinly slIced Onions
1/2 Teaspoon Sumac
thinly slIced Tomatoes
Combine all ingredients except for chicken, fillings, and sauce ingredients to make marinade. If it seems a little dry, add a little olive oil (a tablespoon at a time). Here is an excellent tahini recipe, if you do not have some handy.

Add chicken, cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours, preferably overnight.

In a stockpot or large saucepan, cook chicken over medium heat for 45 minutes or until done. Be sure not to overcook! If chicken becomes a little dry, add a few tablespoons of water throughout cooking duration.

While chicken is cooking, prepare the sauce. Combine sauce ingredients and mix well. Set aside.

Take the onions, tomatoes, cucumbers and sprinkle with sumac. Add other filling ingredients in a large bowl and combine well.

When the chicken is done, you can shred it, slice it, or leave into large pieces. As long as it it thinly cut, there is not much difference. I prefer to cut mine into wide strips.
Prepare the Pita
Place enough chicken on pita that cover 1/4 of the loaf. Add veggies and pour sauce. Roll like a soft taco or burrito and you have shawarma! You can also stuff the pocket of the pita if you like. I prefer to roll large pitas (this is where making your own pita comes in handy), but it is hard to find large loaves of pita at the supermarket.
