Döner Kebab Shopping Tips

Middle Eastern cuisine relies on some fragrant and expensive spices and seasonings such as cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, coriander, turmeric, and sumac. If possible, buy and store them whole; whole spices have a stronger aroma and flavor.

Döner Kebab Cooking Tips

For a stronger flavor and aroma, toast spices before grinding them, and only grind the amount that you need for the recipe. Keeping spices whole until needed extends their shelf life.

Best Turkish Kebabs

Are you a fan of shish kebab? Turkish cuisine is known not only for introducing the world to shish kebab but for a variety of delicious grilled meats and kebabs.

In Turkish cuisine, "şiş" (SHEESH') refers to the metal skewer and "kebap" means "roasted meat dish." Chunks of marinated lamb or beef are placed on the skewers, usually without vegetables, and turned over a coal fire until they're done. Some of the world's best and and most flavorful kebabs come from Turkey's southeastern provinces, and you can make many of these dishes at home.

How it is served?

Once the outer layers of the stacked meat cooks, the Döner chef cuts off the cooked layers with a special Döner Knife and serves it either in a bread or in a durum roll with salad and sliced tomato and onions inside. This is how it serves at small Döner shops. However, if you prefer to eat it at a restaurant, you need to tell the waiter whether you want on a plate or in a durum roll. Personally, I always prefer to eat Döner Kebab in a durum roll. In Turkey, we use lavash bread for durum roll.

In addition to these, Döner Kebab also serve with Ayran beverage. It is the wingman of this delicious food. As Ayran is considered as our national beverage, we love to drink it when we are eating Döner Kebab. So if you are going to eat this mouth juicing kebab, I strongly recommend you to drink Ayran with it.

This simple red-wine vinegar and Dijon mustard marinade is also great on chicken and other vegetables like peppers and zucchini.

Serve the kebabs with a simple and refreshing zucchini and snow-pea salad and you've got a meal.

Home Made Döner Recipe

Doner is normally a street-restaurant food mostly because of its nature. You can guess why. It’s impossible to make a doner stand at home. But it’s not impossible to cook it at home with a different method. Don't look at what I call Turkish food in the country, it's a joke. Maybe not, but güllaç leaves turnip juice, a lot of things like sausages and turns I'd do if I were living in Turkey.

It is one of the most controversial foods in terms of meat used. In particular, the doner kebab, which is found in cheap doner restaurants, is suspicious of the meat used, as well as the danger of food poisoning, especially out of Turkey. As far as I can see the doner you can find out of Turkey, with some exceptions has lots of ingredients but I’m suspicious about meat. Sorry, not sorry, but most of them are not doner but some kind od sausage. The real doner is prepared just with meat.

Home versions of ready-to-eat foods often suffer a slight loss of flavor. But doner is not one of them. The doner I make at home is one of the best one I have ever eaten. Especially when I use soft meat like tenderloin, while eating I can't believe I made it myself.

Can Homemade Doner Be Prepared in Advance?

This type of frozen recipes are generally met with the reaction of "super, I can prepare it in advance and freeze it, then take out and chop when necessary". But there is a small obstacle. The freezing process takes place from outside to inside and the thawing process from outside to inside. For the meat to be chopped easily and thin, it must be hard outside and not inside. For this, it must be freezing, not thawing. In short, you can't do it today and chop it three months later.

A kind of kebab salad, these chicken and garlic bread skewers are genius. Served with a vibrant combination of blood orange, spinach and feta, this dish is the guaranteed super food family favourite.

And for all those extra bits…

Kebabs are all about personalisation, and it’s the extras that you can truly get creative with.

If you want to go all out, serve your kebab with homemade flatbreads or pittas for a classic accompaniment or do as the Greeks do and dish up with a pile of chips .

For something crunchy, go for a simple rainbow slaw, a quick chopped salad or a herby tabbouleh .

Give your kebab some extra heat with this grilled chilli dressing , try something zingy with an easy homemade pickle or cool things down with a creamy yoghurt and mint dip .

The Best German Street Food Sandwich Ever: The Döner

During my many travels to Germany, I always eat a döner. For me, it is the perfect sandwich. A wonderful combination of crunchy bread, grilled meat, tangy sauce, and crispy vegetables. Quite possibly the most popular fast food in Germany, even more popular than a bratwurst, the döner is purely street food.

Originally Turkish street vendor fare that found a large, hungry, and young consumer base in Berlin, the sandwich has now pervaded every city and town in Germany. Often compared to Greek gyros, they are somewhat more complex and vary from place to place, yet similar all the same, much like a hamburger that can be quite different and yet alike.

The meat is often chicken or pork, but lamb, turkey, and even some beef is available. Each shop is different and has what the owner deems important. One can simply ask for a mix of meats as well. Layers of meat are marinated with garlic, rosemary, oregano, other herbs and spices, and then skewered onto a long spit. The entire spit rotates vertically near an open grill. Most vendors use gas vents, some use electric coils, but some old contraptions even use real wood. The meat spins on the spit, slowly cooking while it bastes itself. Usually, a large onion or tomato sits at the top of the spit, its juices running down into the meat mingling together in perfect harmony. This whole contraption continues to spin as the chef slices perpendicularly into it. Most Turkish cooks pride themselves on their abilities with their traditional long bladed knives, but some use modern conveniences such as a motorized saw to speed up the process. This is especially necessary when the customers are backed up around the corner! As the chef slices, small bits of caramelized meat tumble down into the waiting bread.

Gyros or Doner?

I&rsquove always wanted to know what was the difference between a gyros and a döner. You can eat one in the Greek restaurants and the other in the Turkish ones. Both taste great, but are quite similar, so I wondered.

I read a little and found out that both are actually quite the same thing, that is pieces of meat placed on a vertical rotisserie, which turns slowly in front of an electric broiler.

So, can you actually make a gyros or a doner at home? Definitely! Just cut your meat in fine slices, marinate them for a while and cook them in a pan. Wonderful!

What kind of meat do you need?

  • For a German gyros (the Greek style) you can use any meat you like, including pork.
  • For a German döner (the Turkish style) you will forget the pork and use lamb, turkey, or chicken. I&rsquove never had a beef gyro or döner, I am not even sure if beef is an option. The most common döner you will find around here is made with turkey. Because too many German people don&rsquot eat lamb, turkey is fine for everyone.
  • I used two kinds of meat to make today&rsquos German gyros: pork and turkey, so pork for the gyros and turkey for the döner one could say :). Take what you like best, both versions taste great and there is no difference in preparing them.


  • We stuffed the meat into thick Turkish flatbread wedges, which are available anywhere around here.
  • They are very large and I could get four bread pockets out of one bread.
  • Alternatively, you can use the thinner flatbread sold in Oriental shops.
  • Pita breads are also a good option.

Spice mix:

The German gyros spice mix and marinade is very flavorful and easy to put together. You will need:
