Beautiful blog. Thanks for posting this recipe. I used to live in Saudi Arabia and shawarmas were my favorite food (I would buy them from a street vendor whenever I went into town). I haven't had them for over 30 years and didn't know how to make them until now. Thanks so much for posting this delicious sounding recipe.

this looks super delicious and I can't wait to try it! One concern I have is the kind of yogurt. I can't have dairy and the dairy free options are kinda limited. has anyone tried vanilla and know if it still tastes ok?
KurryleavesMarch 2, 2016 at 6:01 am
Try using non dairy yogurt ,cashew / peanut yogurt is a good option.Make sure you adjust the amount of lime juice for the tahini sauce according to your taste.
