Middle Eastern chicken shawarma is a delicious recipe made with thinly sliced seasoned chicken, veggies, and sauce wrapped in a Kubz or Pita bread

Shawarma is the ultimate on-the-go meal. If you’ve never had Shawarma, you are truly missing out on a delightful quick meal. Like a fast food burger with its ketchup and mustard, shawarma is not complete unless it has a sauce to go with it.

I was totally not in a mood of cooking today but feel like eating that yummy shawarma we bought from our favourite shop,its nearly December so cold outside,also don’t want to go and buy that ,so I decided to make it myself , keeping in mind all those tastes and textures, I made this recipe in a quick and easy way with less messy kitchen 😉

It comes out superb so do try and give your feed backs <3
