Chawarma/ Shawarma( Shish taouk masala filling)

Chawarma with Shish taouk masala filling was such a great hit here. I added some extra pepper powder to make the Shish taouk masala spicy and dark brownish in color. The French fries were also spiced up by added salt, pepper and chilly powder. On the whole the spicy filling with the creamy mayonnaise - garlic paste went really well and the chawarma was indeed a super hit. Here's the recipe...

Pita - 2 nos
Mayonnaise - 2 tbsp
Garlic - 1/2 tsp
French fries - 2 handful
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/8 tsp

Shish taouk masala for the filling
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp

In a pan, heat oil, add the Shish taouk masala and pepper powder and stir fry till the chicken is well browned and coated with the peppery layer, turn off the flame and keep aside. Sprinkle some chilly powder, pepper and salt on the french fries, mix well and keep aside. Heat the pita on a tawa or pan. Place it on a work table, spread 1 tbsp mayonnaise - garlic paste on each pita. Place the peppery Shish taouk masala on the center along with the spicy french fries. Roll it well. Place again on the tawa or sandwich press, and heat for a min or till it gets its shape. Wrap it using a aluminium foil or wrapping paper. Serve hot

Can include some pickled veggies or salad also for the filling. Mix the mayonnaise and garlic paste to get the mayonnaise - garlic paste. Excellent way to use leftover Shish taouk masala
