Shawarma vs. Doner
Shawarma is the most popular Middle Eastern dish in comparison to doners. The Arabic word for “turning” is the name of this dish. It’s made with a stack meat on a vertical grill. This delicacy belongs to the Arab-Middle Eastern region.

Similarly, doner kebab is a popular street food kebab variety in the US. To cook vertically, thinly slice the meat and stack them over each other. Doner kebabs are from the Turkish-Middle Eastern Region.

Major Differences between Shawarma and Doners
Meat Variety
Shawarma was originally made from lamb and mutton meat. However, as the dish became famous, other varieties of meat, such as veal, turkey, chicken, and beef, were introduced. The main ingredient is the lamb fat that is placed between each layer of meat to keep it moist.

Doner kebabs can be made with lamb or mutton. But as the dish became increasingly popular, different varieties of meat started being used to cater to all types of customers. The only protein that’s NOT used for any of these dishes is pork.

Cooking Method
For shawarma, the layers of meat are stacked to slowly grill on a rotisserie as the rod continues to rotate. Once the outer layer has been cooked, it can be shaved and used to make a wrap.

Doner kebabs can also be cooked in many different ways. They can be grilled on fire, coals, oven or fried in a skillet. These kebabs can also be cooked as a stew, similar to Tas kebab.

Shawarma follows a staple method of preparation and cooking. Doner kebabs can have a different recipe depending on where they are being prepared. This dish can be found in Egypt, Turkey and Arab countries. Each country has its own cooking method.

Serving Style
Shawarmas are served in two ways only: wrap-in bread or a platter where each element is placed separately. In comparison, kebabs are served on skewers in plates.

Topping and Garnishing
Shawarma is often served with tahini and hummus. These condiments are essential for great shawarma.

Doner kebabs on the other hand are served with tomatoes, pickled cucumbers and onions, as well as tzatziki sauce and yogurt.
