Chicken Shawarma

Chicken shawarma is a popular Arab dish by grilling meat on spit . It is prepared by stacking of marinated chicken meat and fats alternately on spit. The meat is grilled slowly as the spit rotates which in turn , gives the meat a juicy and tender flavour . Grilled chicken is shredded off from the spit when needed and served with tahini dip , seasoned veggies and french fries to make wraps and rolls. 




Before when I had this many years back , though not exactly the same, but such kind of wraps in a turkey restaurant in Switzerland ,I instantly fell in love with it. But then later these " shawarma " was introduced at few malls in  Mumbai ( India) too. Nowadays , in mumbai " Shawarma" are served street side too , at mahim and mohammed ali road, and their version of chicken shawarma is different to the authentic ones, but I really love their version too, and have made them many times at home.





Street food here in Mumbai is really cherished and loved by a majority of people…
