Recipe for Chicken Shawarma

Ingredients

  • Chicken- 1 kg
  • Garlic- 3 cloves
  • Cumin powder- 1 teaspoon
  • Cardamom powder- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Coriander Powder- 1 teaspoon
  • Pepper powder- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cayenne pepper powder- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • Salt to taste
  • Pita bread
  • Ingredients
  • Active dry yeast- 2-1/4 teaspoons
  • Lukewarm water- 1/2 cup
  • Flour- 3 1/2 cups ( I used wheat flour)
  • Salt- 1-1/4 teaspoons
  • Sugar- 1 teaspoon
  • Lukewarm water- 1 cup

Cooking Directions

Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients and refrigerate for a few hours (preferably overnight).

Cook the chicken in a pan or pressure cooker. After it cools, remove the meat from the bones and keep aside.

For the smoky effect, place the meat in a container with lid. Keep a heatproof bowl in the container and place a heated charcoal in the bowl.

Pour 1/2 teaspoon butter/ghee on the charcoal and cover the container immediately. Leave for a few minutes. Your smoke flavoured chicken is ready

Method
Disslove yeast in 1/2 cup lukewarm water, add sugar, stir and let it stand for 10 minutes until frothy.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt, mix thoroughly using your hands or a rubber spatula. Make a well, add the yeast and about 1/2 the lukewarm water.

Gradually add more water, a few tablespoons at a time and mix well using a rubber spatula (it can be very sticky until well mixed) until firm and elastic and just a little sticky (may adhere slightly to your hand).

Turn dough on to a lightly floured working surface and knead for 10 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic. Return to the bowl, cover with a plastic wrap and leave in a warm place to rise.

When dough has nearly doubled in size, punch down, knead lightly and make lemon sized balls.

Place balls on a lightly floured surface a few inches apart, cover and let it rest for 10 – 15 minutes.

Roll out the balls into rounds and bake in the preheated oven(220C) or cook them in a griddle.

Assembling
Take a pita bread. Spread a spoonful of Tzatziki sauce. Sprinkle the shredded chicken followed by chopped onion, cucumber and tomatoes. Pour another spoonful of Tzatziki sauce
