Chicken Shawarma

For the veg version of Shawarma you can replace chicken with Falafel. And the black tahini sauce can be replaced by the white tahini sauce. The original shawarma recipe calls for the white tahini sauce. I made the black sesame sauce as i was out of white one :( , still I succeeded in doing so.
Chicken Grill
Chicken Breast: 300gms
Lemon Juice: 1 tsp
Vinegar: 1tbsp
Garlic: 1 (crushed)
Pepper Powder: ¼ tsp
Garam Masala: 1tsp
Chilli Powder: ¼ tsp
Curd/ Yogurt: ¼ cup
Salt: needed
Olive oil: 2tbsp
Onion Thinly Chopped: 1
Tomato Thinly Chopped: few
Tahini Sauce: needed (I used the black sesame seed sauce, you can use the White sesame seed sauce)
Method of Preparation
Chicken Grill
Cut the chicken breast piece into thin wide pieces. Wash and drain and keep aside.
In a bowl add curd, vinegar, garlic paste, pepper powder, garam Masala, chilli powder, lemon juice and salt. Mix well with hand.
Take washed and drained chicken. Make holes with a fork on the chicken pieces. Marinate with the above paste and keep aside for about 2-3 hours.
You can shallow fry the chicken or can grill the chicken. I Shallow fried, heat a pan and add olive oil, place the chicken pieces and shallow fry by flipping it and take out when done.
When slightly cooled chop into small pieces. Keep Aside

Take Lebanese bread/ Pita bread.
Spread tahini sauce on it.

Then add some chopped onion, French fries, tomato, chicken pieces, if needed again you can add some more tahini sauce on top 

and roll 

and wrap with parchment paper and serve hot.

Note: you can add carrot, cucumber or any veg of your choice. You can add a tbsp of mayonnaise in each wrap too which would add an extra taste to it, i didn't do so as i am really concious of intake of calories.
