Though I ate various types of kabab in India but had no clue about 'chicken shawarma'. I tasted this delicious dish first time in Austin, Texas and now they are available in pretty much all over the world. Shawarma' is a middle eastern kabab preparation which can be made of lamb / chicken / turkey or beef. I had them first time with pilaf and second time with pita bread. My husband and I both fell in love with the second version and tried so many of them from different restaurants. Professionally 'shawarma' is made by stacking the seasoned meat on a spit and then roasted slowly in front of a flame for hours. At home we can't get that facility .. so don't worry, make them on tawa or flat pan and enjoy the same taste and texture of 'shawarma'.
