Chawarma (one base for all)


I make chawarma/ shawarma at home quite often and yes with so many different fillings. Sometimes, its chicken, sometimes, meat, kebe, falafel (chickpea vadas), french fries etc. The chawarma base can be so simple yet so full of flavour, tasty and healthy. This one can be used as a common base for any chawarma. I have used a garlic mayonnaise sauce as the chawarma sauce here. One can also use hummos or tahini sauce (sesame sauce). Here goes the recipe.....

Ingredients:
Lebanese bread - 1 nos
Garlic -mayonnaise sauce - 1 tbsp
Pickled cucumber - 2-3 small
Lettuce leaves (chopped) - 1 handful
Onion - 1 nos
Tomato - 1 nos

Method:
Place the Lebanese bread on a tawa and warm it. Spread garlic mayonnaise sauce. Top with sliced or chopped pickled cucumber ( I used small Lebanese cucumber). Also add chopped onions, tomato and lettuce. Place any main ingredient of choice like falafel, chicken , meat etc. wrap into a roll using a wrapping paper or aluminium foil and enjoy.

Note:
Mix 1/4 tsp garlic paste with 2 tbsp mayonnaise to get garlic mayonnaise sauce. Soak tiny Lebanese cucumber in vinegar with salt to get pickled cucumber (can include other veggies as well). Can replace lettuce leaves with fresh parsley, coriander etc.
