  22. 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.
