    Thank you for shawarma recipe, I really really like the way you explained it, Me and my family like shawarma when we ate it in asian restaurant so i’m going to try this one in upcoming weekend where we set together once in a week so this will be amazing can you please tell me if i use persian saffron in it ? this will be perfect or not give me some suggestion


    • Luna Regina

      Hi Debra. I suppose it would be a more gourmet dish if there was persian saffron 😀 I expect it to be a bit more bitter and tangy. Anyway, my suggestion is, go for it 😀 Really can’t wait to learn from this new experience of yours 😉

    The thing I love about this dish is that it’s super easy to make. Oh for God’s sake, I love all the mediterranean dishes made in the oven. I mean, why not when they’re super effort-saving? Haha. Sure there are waiting time this and that but it takes me literally no special skills. I’m so new to cooking but I find it a breeze following your recipe 😉


    I love chicken shawarma but I never tried at home. Thanks for this recipe I will try it at home.

    How many servings does it make?

    • Luna Regina

      Hi Sarrah! This recipe makes four servings — four large shawarma rolls. Each roll is served with a side of hummus and veggie sticks.
