- Heat oil in a pan over high flame and cook the chicken till done and the liquid content dries out. Remove from flame.
- Grease a cake tin and keep it ready. Preheat the oven to 180 degree.
- Take one tortilla, spread little shawarma sauce all over and add little cooked chicken, little pickled vegetables and french fries at the center lengthwise (as you fill it for shawarma). Wrap it tightly and cut it to 3 – 4 pieces depending on the size of the tortilla. Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas (reserve the remaining shawarma sauce to serve with the sandwich).

Top it with mozzarella cheese and coriander leaves and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes or till the cheese is melt completely and cheese starts changing the colour. Remove from oven and serve hot with remaining shawarma sauce.

Note : *Serves 3 – 4 people. *Here I used store bought whole wheat tortillas, any flat bread of your choice can be used instead of tortillas. *I used large tortillas (25cm diameter), so I could cut it to 4 pieces. *If using small one, use more tortillas. *Paprika powder can be substituted with red chili powder (use paprika powder itself for best results). *This is a very tasty and filling snack for Iftar.
