I will keep this post short and sweet (or actually savory!)
Shawarma has got to be one of the most popular middle eastern sandwiches, right next to falafel and arayes . Yet so many people seem to be intimidated by it! They are convinced that you can’t make great shawarma at home!
They couldn’t be more wrong
Today’s recipe is here to prove it!
There is nothing intimidating about making shawarma, it is actually one of the simplest and easiest Middle Eastern recipes in my book. It requires very little active working time. All you have to do is prepare the marinade, toss the chicken in it and leave it in the fridge. and you’re done! All you have to do the next day is cook it.
Simple as it may be, this recipe has 3 secrets that will guarantee that you’ll get an amazing, authentic , and juicy shawarma every time and these three secrets are:

This month’s daring cooks challenge was about Biryani. Biryani is a rice-based dish made with spices, rice (usually basmati) and chicken, mutton, fish, eggs, or vegetables.The name is derived from the Persian word beryān which means “fried” or “roasted”.
Grace, one of our talented non-blogging Daring Kitchen members, was our Daring Cooks’ August hostess who shared with us some of her family’s tried and true Bengali Biryani recipes – all of them delicious and all of them prepared fresh from our own kitchens!
This was my second time making Biryani and my first time making chicken biryani (the first was meat biryani). In my first attempt I used a ready made biryani spice mix that turned out to be too spicy. We couldn’t even finish the meal. This time around I was determined to make a biryani the entire family would enjoy. For guidance I used the challenge recipe, my friend Manu’s Hyderabadi chicken recipe and my friend Suhad’s biryani recipe. The aroma of the herbs and spices made everyone hungry as the biryani was cooking. We all had great expectations for this chicken biryani and it did not disappoint, even my four year old son enjoyed it immensely .
