Homemade Shawarma

 The shawarma is to Nigeria what curry is to the English. A dish we’ve really much taken into our hearts and household. Today, I am sharing with you my homemade shawarma recipe. It might not be the authentic method you find in the streets, but it does the job, so I stick with it.
