I have tasted shawarma quite a few times here in restaurants. All the time it tasted like they have mixed chicken and veggies in mayo and rolled up in a pita bread. But i have tasted shawarma in a bakery here, they grill chicken right in the skewer in front of us, shred it up and stuff it in pita and serve, it was delicious. Many of my viewers asked me to share shawarma recipe, i shared a healthy version..
So i taught of sharing the version which i have tasted in restaurants. This is the version, it is tasty and so easy to make.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
