This shawerma is quite famous in the Gulf and the difference is; it is wrapped in thin chapati like bread called Fatira( Marku) and some find it tasties then the regular Shawermas.
non vegetarian 4 servings
4 Fatiras (Marku)
For chicken marination:
4 pieces of boneless chicken(thigh and leg would be better) shredded
2 tbsp yoghurt
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp spice powder( mixture of cardamom, cinnamon, little cloves,black pepper)
salt to adjust your taste I put 1 tsp.
2- 3 cloves garlic paste.
1/4 tsp paprika opt
2 tbsp oil
1 cup thick French fries
4 tbsp mayo or garlic sauce (check Sneha's recipes)
2 tsp Tahina
2 tsp thick Arabian chili chutney (red chilli, salt, olive oil, crushed garlic)
8 strips pickled cucumber
4 leaves Lettuce (opt)
Marinade the chicken over night in all it's ingredients.
In the morning cook the chicken over a grill or pan over medium heat making sure not to over cook.
Remove from heat and spread out each Fatira and over it apply 1 tbsp Garlic sauce, lettuce, pickled cucumber,chicken, 1/2 tsp chilli chutney and 1/2 tsp Tahina and roll folding the sides first then like a Swiss roll ( like spring rolls).
Cut the roll into 2"-3 " thick circles, place on a platter and decorate with pickled veggies and some garlic sauce on the side.
