Binging with Babish: Shawarma from The Avengers

  • Published on Apr 10, 2018
  • Joss Whedon didn't just bring dynamic characters, dazzling action, and rapid-fire quips to the MCU - he brought one character's singular hunger, a hunger that grew like a virus within the Avengers themselves. A hunger...for shawarma. Solemnly munch along in silence this week as we marvel at a carnivorous carousel and puff up some pita.

    Just a recommendation for y’all making this. If you don’t have time to make the dough just add flour, water, and a pinch of salt instead. It tastes the same and is even cheaper.

    You should have put red sweet pepper in the shwarma and the bread must be 3 times bigger in size and when you were making the bread you must leave it until it forms into a oval shaped ball if you look at it from the side and the color on the bottom must be all brown not bunt just brown

    first of all: the shawarma have to be marinated in lemon bath ( or orange or any citron fruit) and certain spice mix which is different from place to place and chef to chef. the rest is ok. but also we never make tziziki salad as the sauce of shawarma but we make a GARLIC SAUCE for chicken not tahini, and for the beef shawarma we use tahini sauce. salad is all about a personal choise, basically the chicken shawarma contain only pickled cucumber while the beef shawarma contain some mix of (onion, parsley and tomato) plus any pikes optional, and of course the tahini sauce.

    where did you get this tabbouleh receipt؟!
    for god sake the amount of wheat , this Mujaddara not tabbouleh anymore
    and cucumbers are just a bit much, use lettuce instead, and all the salting dear god all the salting
    I don't blame you, you clearly never tasted tabbouleh before,
    it is supposed to be green and fresh, smell and taste of spring

    that is NOT how you make tzatziki!
    you shred a whole cucumber in a kitchen towel, squeeze out all of the water, add it to the greek yoghurt, add 3-4 or even more pressed garlic cloves, add a sprinkle of olive oil, maybe abit of lemon
    and then let it sit in the fridge for a while
