Store-bought shawarma can be considered unhealthy fast food because the dish is often made with low-quality meat and a lot of sauces. But if you make shawarma at home, it will be a very nutritious dish, especially if you add a lot of vegetables.

The idea of making a juicy homemade shawarma was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Yulia Symonchuk (cook_julija_simonchuk). You can combine sour cream and mayonnaise for the sauce.
