<IngredientText>This shawarma recipe is as authentic as you can get without actually owning a shawarma grill.
It uses some ingredients that can be quite hard to come by unless you live in a large city - but then that?s what the internet is for - so much can be bought or sourced on-line.
(see essentials for links to suppliers)
The flavour comes from the marinade - 24 hours is the minimum I would marinade the meat for, but overnight will do...
