Juicy Chicken Shawarma Recipe

Recipe By Slurrp

Sharwarma is a type of roll that is found in several parts of the world today. This meaty snack was once a hidden gem of the Ottoman Empire or present-day Turkey. During the 1900s and 2000s, this delicious and juicy roll was introduced in Turkey wherein the word shawarma was derived from the Arabic word meaning turning. The interesting technique of making shawarma originates from the doner kebabs of the Middle-East. In case of shawarma, the meat is cut into thin slices while hanging on a rotisserie in motion. The man associated with the heavenly delicacy is Kadir Nurman who not only gave the world doner kebabs, but shawarma too. This delicious, juicy non-veg snack based on chicken is marinated in Middle Eastern spices. It’s a really popular street food in the Mediterranean, but you can get those same delicious flavours right at home.
