A flat bread or roti with filling of meat and vegetables and tangy sauces, the best part you can eat it on the go. That my friends is one of the best fast food inventions—a roll; and the big daddy of the rolls is Shawarma.
Yes the Middle Eastern delicacy that has taken the world of rolls by storm. Let us see what Shawarma means:
Shawarma is an Arabic rendering of Turkish ‘turning’, in reference to the rotisserie-cooked nature of the meat, which “turns” around an axis.
Shawarma is a meat preparation, where lamb, chicken, turkey, beef, veal, buffalo meat and may be grilled for as long as a day. Shavings are cut off the block of meat for serving, and the remainder of the block of meat is kept heated on the rotating spit. Shawarma can be served on a plate (generally with accompaniments), or as a sandwich or wrap. Shawarma is usually eaten with toppings such as tahini, hummus, pickled turnips, and amba.
In simple words awesomeness served wrapped up in tangy gooey comfort!
Here in India we get lamb and chicken Shawarma. The taste varies from cities to cities but the basic flavors remain the same. The next time you are peckish and do not want to eat the usual roti sabzi try a Shawarma, it’s filling and tasty. And do let me know if you haven eaten one and your favorite Shawarma joint and the city! I would love to try it too!
