This is not exactly apropos your mushroom shwarma :) but I could really do a chicken one. Have we a recipe? There's a great little place on Leyton High Rd, quality food.

From 2014 post


Chicken version -Marinate boneless chick thighs in a creamy yogurt mixed with a dash of cinnamon, black lime powder, olive oil and salt to taste. Grill till crispy brown. Wrap in warmed pitta bread with fresh tomatoes, onion and a swish of garlic mayo


Lamb version ( my preference)....marinated and cooked the same....Wrap in warmed pitta bread with fresh tomatoes, onion , mint, garlic except a swish of Tahine sauce....Yeeeeaaahhh. The tahine sauce makes all the difference with the lamb version.

To make the Tahine sauce :-

Tahini sauce for shawarmas

Try this method, 150 ml tahini paste. 150ml water. 80ml lemon juice. 2 crushed garlic cloves. 1/2 tsp. salt. 30gm flat leaf parsley, finely chopped. Whisk tahini, water,lemon juice,garlic & salt until creamy & smooth. If it's too thick add more water. Stir in the parsley. Whisk again.

black lime powder = dried limes which are then grated to a powder

All the best
