Plats (chawarma)

Those who love chawarma, and want to have lots of it... can always try this plats . They are sandwiches made with pita. Quite heavy as there is a rich filling inside usually made with hummos, mayonnaise - garlic paste, chicken or meat or turkey or falafel etc., with some french fries, pickled veggies, salad etc. Filling is placed on one pita, then another pita is placed on top to make these plats. The fillings and combinations can be many. There are variety of plats like hummos chawarma, steak, taboule (Lebanese salad ), fatouche (Lebanese salad), salad, hummos mutton, chicken liver, minced meat etc. In this I have used chicken filling. Here goes the recipe....

Pita - 2 nos
Mayonnaise - 2 tbsp
Garlic paste - 1/4 tsp
French fries - 1 handful
Boneless chicken - 200 grams
Onions - 1 nos
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Chicken stock cube - 1 nos
Dark soya sauce -1 tbsp
Green chillies - 1 nos
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt if required for taste only

Heat oil in a wok, Add finely chopped onion and stir fry till golden brown, add ginger - garlic paste and saute for a min. Add the chilly powder and give it a stir. Add diced chicken cubes and saute for a min. Add finely chopped green chillies, chicken stock cube, pepper powder, dark soya sauce and give a good stir. Add salt if required (little water can be added if required). Cook till its done or till oil seperates. Now the chicken filling is ready. Place one pita on a work table. Spread mayonnaise-garlic paste, place the chicken filling, some french fries. Place another pita on top. Serve this with pickled veggies or salad.

Mix mayonnaise and garlic paste to get mayonnaise-garlic paste. I did not add salt as the chicken stock cube that i used had salt in it (moreover dark soya sauce also has salt). Excellent way to use leftover chicken .
