Arabian Chicken Shawarma at Home – Healthy Version

Get to find here the Arabian Chicken Shawarma recipe that is going to knock your socks off!  Just a handful of every day spices makes an incredible Arabian Chicken Shawarma marinade that infuses the chicken with exotic Middle Eastern flavors at the comfort of your home. The smell when this is cooking is insane!

                Arabian Chicken Shawarma

What else can make you so happy and contented when you can make the Delicious and Healthy version of Arabian Shawarma at home? I got to learn this for Zain who just loves Shawarma and wants it badly once a week. And why not, when it’s completely Guilt- Free!!

A  middle eastern wrap, the Chicken Shawarma Recipe is an on-the-go meal by itself. Packed in a Pita with shredded chicken, pickled veggies and a yummilicious yogurt or mayo spread, this recipe is a keeper.

Chicken Shawarma Recipe

This is a favourite dish that everyone loves to eat. Shawarma hails from the Middle Eastern region, which is considered as a meat preparation made with chicken, beef, lamb or turkey.

The meat is usually placed on a spit which is nothing but a vertical grill and roasted until the meat is cooked. Using a knife the meat is shaved to thin slices and then mixed along with some hummus, crunchy onions and wrapped with pickled cucumber and green chillies. 

Here at  Riyadhmommy we have recreated the shawarma in a simpler form so that you can easily try this out in your kitchen and surprise your family. 

Chicken Shawarma -pic credit


  • 3/4 tbs
  • Youghurt.
  • p Cumin Powder.
  • 3/4 tbsp Turmeric Powder.
  • 3/4 tbsp Coriander powder.
  • 3/4 tbsp garlic powder.
  • 3/4 tbsp Red Chilli powder.
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves.
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, more if you prefer
  • Salt
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced.
  • 1 large Cucumber, finely chopped.
  • Spicy Mayonnaise.
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil.       

How to prepare Mayo Sauce.

  1. Add the Onions, Capsicum and Cucumbers with some coriander leaves and parsley. Now add the Mayonnaise. Sprinkle some salt and black pepper into it.

How to make chicken shawarma at home.

The secret is in the shawarma spice mixture, including warm spices including cumincorianderturmericpaprika and a tablespoon of Red chili powder if you like that spicy flavour. SO MUCH FLAVOR!

 1. Make the shawarma spice mixture. Simply add the spices into a small bowl and mix to combine.

2. Cut up some boneless, skinless chicken thighs into small bite-size pieces.  (you can use chicken breast if you like, this is just my personal preference.)

 3. Spice the chicken up, make sure to coat the chicken well with the spice mixture. Add onions, lemon juice, Yoghurt and extra virgin olive oil. If you have the time, cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight (if you don’t, you can skip the marinating time, it’ll still be delicious).

4. When ready, lay the chicken shawarma on a large sheet pan. And bake in 425 degrees heated oven for 30 minutes or so (you can check a bit earlier as ovens do vary.) OR You can Fry them with some olive oil.

5. Now apply some plain Mayo to the pita bread or Khuboos. Place the fried Chicken on to the Bread. Place the Mayo Sauce with Veggies. You can also add some Fries if looking for restaurant style shawarma.

How to Serve Chicken Shawarma?

The true Middle Eastern way to serve chicken shawarma is in pita pockets or wraps with heaps of veggies and a good deal of sauce. I like the idea of loaded pita pockets. You can use Khuboos otherwise which is also a healthy option.

Homemade wedges are so much better than store-bought. Here’s the how-to breakdown to make them in the comfort of your own kitchen!

Home made Potato Wedges

Seasoned Potato Wedges

When I first started out making wedges, the one thing I was intimidated by was how to cut potatoes into the perfect shape wedge. Getting them crispy was another issue. BUT, it is actually the complete opposite as they are SO EASY to make!

Seasoning with paprikagarlic and onion powder, salt and pepper makes them super quick to throw together.

Why This Recipe Works?

  • The combination of spices adds a kick of flavor without the hassle of chopping garlic and onions.
  • Using low-fat cooking spray makes them less oily in taste and much healthier.
  • The flavors used makes them a versatile side dish that works with anything from fish to steak.


  • 6 large russet potatoes, rinsed
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 cup Multi purpose Flour.
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic, (or 3 teaspoons garlic powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt, (adjust to your tastes)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black cracked pepper
  • Cumin seeds
  • Oregano


  1. Start by washing the potatoes to get rid of any dirt.  Then cut each potato in half lengthwise, cut each half into 2-4 wedges (depending on size) so that you end up with 6-8 wedges from each potato.
Cut the wedges

2. Boil some water with salt in a pot and once starts boiling, put the sliced wedges into it .

Set a timer for 5 min. In this step, 50% of the potato is done.

Boil the wedges

3. In a small jug, combine the Wheat flour, Multi- purpose flour, cumin seeds. Sprinkle paprika, garlic powder, oregano, parsley onion powder, salt, and pepper.  


4. Now add the wedges into the prepared batter and let it settle for 2 min.

Put the wedges into batter

5. Fry the Wedges . Tadda !! Crispy Spicy Potato Wedges are ready to serve. Have it with some Yummy Tomato Sauce!!

Mutton or Laham Mandi Recipe- How to make Mutton Mandi at Home

Who doesn’t love to eat the traditional Mutton/ Laham Mandi ? Ofcourse, we all love to try this.

Arabic Mutton Mandi or Laham Mandi is a traditional meat and rice dish (which is almost similar to Kabsa or Biryani ). This Dish is very much fond among the Middle east, Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The word Mandi comes from the arabic word, NADA, which means dew. Hence, reflects a dewy flavour when the meat is cooked.

This recipe has been originated in Yemen, but now very much common among Indians and Pakistanis.

Mutton Mandi

The Traditional Mutton/ Laham Mandi Recipe is prepared by roasting the mutton. Especially a young Lamb to enhance its flavour. Sometimes Mandi is prepared using chicken, but the traditional Mandi dish consists of mutton or lamb. We also add Raisins, Almonds, Cashews and Nuts fried in Butter for garnishing  to give that crispy crunch and flavour.

This Recipe is prepared with delicious Arabian Rice, i.e, cooked in moist Rice and a perfectly cooked tender mutton. The Mutton is fully cooked with Mandi Spices.

A combination of soft and tender Mutton/ Lamb Meat with aromatic rice along with Arabic style Tomato chutney will make you fall in love !!! Believe me!
