Step 5- After the second resting, take the dough ball and coat with dry flour, flatten with hands and further use a rolling pin to roll into a thin chapati. Use flour if required. 

Step 6- Set a tawa and cook the chapati(pita bread) over a hot Pan from both the sides until it start appearing golden spots, use a napkin and press the pita bread gently to fluff it up the bread while cooking.

  • Cinamon powder (A pinch).
  • Curd 4tsp.
  • Oil for grilling.


Step 1- Wash all the boneless chicken well with lots of water, if you’re preferring chicken breast so, then slice down the breast thinly in two or three section, further flatten then chicken with the back of the knife, if you’re choosing to go with thigh just simply flatten them with back of the knife. 

Step 2- Sprinkle salt to taste and apply it to the chicken, let the marinaton take rest for upto 10 to 15 minutes. 

Step 3- Now, add the remaining marinade ingredients in a separate mixing bowl, whisk well to ensure no lumps get created, further add the salt applied chicken and mix well, marinade the chicken for a couple of hours, if you prefer your chicken to be more flavourfull, then marinate it for around 24 hours. 

Step 4- Once the chicken is marinated, set a pan on high heat, add oil and cook the marinated chicken from both the sides until it cooked and tendered. Make sure the pan is hot. Tip: if you’re using breast and thigh both, make sure to cook them separately, as the thigh takes longer to cook than breast.

Step 5- Once cooked rest for 2 minutes and slice the chicken in thin strips. You can also bake them in oven, like the shawarma venders do on a shawarma rolling machine, simply take a big size potato and trim the base of potato to make like a stand, insert a skewer in the potato and then skew the marinated chicken in the skewer, bake the chicken in a preheated oven at 230 for 10-15 minutes. 

Step 6- Once baked and the chicken is cooked and tendered, slice it in thin strips like the shawarma vendors do, keep aside to make shawarma.
