Turkish cuisine is unimaginable without Kebab - roasted meat on the coals!

The history of this snack goes far back in time: the first kebab prepared already in the II century BC. e. from the sacrificial lamb with honey and olive oil. Now it is made from all kinds of meat, fish, poultry and minced meat.

In Turkey, they like to tell the legend of how the Great Alexander the Great during his military campaign put thinly sliced ​​lamb on the cake, sprinkle with lentils, abundantly watered yogurt and offered to call liked his dish name. That's because there was a famous Iskender kebab which is still "fought on the felling of" all those who eat it.

In general, many varieties of kebabs. Shish kebab - it is well-known barbecue. Kebab - strung on a skewer "sausages" of minced meat.

But the most interesting story - with the so-called Donar Kebab. The fact is that several people consider it their ancestral dish and is called differently. In Greece - a "guros" in India and Pakistan - "kebab", the Arabs and many other peoples of the world - is "shawarma" or "shaverma". But I would not call this dish, and it is translated to all languages ​​equally - "rotating meat". In general, the recipe is quite simple: the pieces of meat or chicken is very tight strung on a vertical skewer and roast, turning slowly over the coals. Finished pieces are cut and wrapped in pita bread or cake. Next - business fancy chefs and desires of the client. The cake to the meat can add chopped vegetables, salad or just onion rings.
