I shared this recipe years back, now I’m re-uploading with new pics and video! Many of you may have already tried this recipe of mine, but if you are yet to try this, please do try it out guys, it’s finger-licking good! My family favorite!

This is not the exact authentic way of preparing Arabic Shawarma, which is only with french fries, chicken, and toum. This one is a juicy one loaded with salads like how we get from our place! So I’m updating my old post! You may also roll it in pita bread and use it as a shawarma roll!
