In Israel or Lebanon Shawarma is made with many more spices than in the first post. I particularly enjoy the lebanese or palestinian style.

An easy way to prepare it is to simply use 'Baharat' spice mix (the curry powder of the middle east). If you can't find it then you can try to make your own:

I would be willing to try to bring some of this back from Abu Dhabi in early February if anyone would like to order some at cost + P&P ?

I just used what I had in the cupboard, strong white bread flour.
I was quite impressed with the breads, a keeper for sure. But missed the graininess you sometimes get with a pizza base.
I might dip the balls in semolina next time prior to rolling out. See how that goes.  :)

Hi CT
Have you a recommended recipe as I really like the cypriot etc type but would rather not pay 80p each if poss
Absolutely loads of similar recipes and uTube ‘how to’ vids on the web.

“Food wishes vid” is good as it shows the wet batter method when mixing the dough.
plus he kind of sings as he talks, which I find quite amusing.
(His end result is a bit thick, I would just roll them thinner)

Anyhoo, use Plain Flour (All Purpose) all you need is a bowl and rolling pin
400g Plain flour
3 Tbsps of Olive Oil
1 tsp Instant Yeast
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Sugar
A Coffee Mug of (lukewarm) Water (250 mL)

cheers Chewy
Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol

Managed to get some whole black lime from rusholme. Will post pic when I get chance. The idea being to grind yourself.

Also picked up on tasting the Atlas lamb shawarma that green cardamom is used. Thought it worked well with the black lime and will adopt.

last go changes:
1) used dry parsley 0.5 tsp per  tahine portion - not as good as fresh but good enough
2) served bought humus - a real find from atlas in rusholme
3) Added green cardamom 4 off to the lamb marinade (again a find from atlas) -too little will try 8 off next
4) used lamb leg boned and sliced  10 mm thk by butcher - worked a treat sorted
5) used half a black lime 1.5 tsp ground - real McCoy stuff well pleased. Might try full lime on next go

Was well impressed with this make - feel I'm almost sorted ie in heaven
