Shawarma Seasoning Mix




Every city has its cheap take out specialty and we live in Ottawa, the city of Shawarma. When you're downtown there is literally a shawarma shop on every block and although they are delicious, they're also very questionable looking. I saw a packet of shawarma seasoning in the store once and decided to try making a home version that won't give me food poisoning!

Single Use

1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon cardamom powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon dry mustard powder



Big Batch (makes 4 uses)

¼ cup chili powder
¼ cup coriander powder
4 teaspoons cardamom powder
4 teaspoons paprika
4 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dry mustard powder

What else you’ll need

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast cut in strips
Pitas
Tomatoes
Pickles
Lettuce
Mayonnaise mixed with garlic

Combine 3 tablespoons of mix with chicken breasts and marinade in a covered bowl in the fridge.


Cook chicken on a grill pan, indoor grill or frying pan.



Serve on pitas with pickles, lettuce, tomatoes and garlic mayo. I made some fried potato cubes to go on the side.


These shawarmas tasted just like real shawarmas, only not exactly because they tasted much better!!!
