Chawarma/Shawarma vegetarian


Chawarma vegetarian is very healthy meal. The combinations available at restaurants are few like falafel chawarma or kebe (veg) chawarma or even a normal veg chawarma where some french fries, salad (Lebanese salad which includes chopped parsley, cucumber, tomatoes etc). But, I love to make my own combinations without compensating for the taste. I try out new combinations which are not only tasty and spicy but also healthy. Here is one.


Ingredients:
Pita - 2 nos
French fries - one handful
Mayonnaise - 2 tbsp
Garlic paste - 1/4tsp


For the veg filling:
Onions - 1 nos
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
Red chilly paste - 1 tbsp
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Capsicum or green bell peppers - 1 nos
Green peas - 1/4 cup
Carrots - 1 nos
Salt for taste
Olive oil - 2 tbsp

Method:
Heat oil in a wok, add finely chopped onions and saute till golden brown. Add the ginger-garlic paste and saute for a min. Add chilly powder and give a stir. Add red chilly paste, chopped capsicum , carrots (cut into thin strips), green peas and stir fry for 2 min. Finally add salt and stir well. Now the veg filling is ready. Place the pita on a tawa for 30sec (or till it is soft). Mix mayonnaise and garlic paste well and spread about 1 tbsp on each pita. Place the veg filling, french fries and wrap it well. Place it on a sandwich maker or tawa/ pan and heat it, till its stiff and gets that shape of a roll. Wrap it with a aluminium foil sheet or any wrapping paper and serve hot.

Note:
Can add pickled veggies, salads etc. along with the veg filling.
