Freshness, control are just a few of the advantages, not to mention avoiding preservatives. These homemade sauces are versatile and not only used for shawarma. But if you ever wondered what sauces goes into a shawarma, these are it!
Tzatziki (Shawarma White Sauce)
Tzatziki is a sauce or dip common in the Middle East and Southern Europe more specifically, Greece. When served with shawarma, it gives a refreshing balance to strong flavors of the meat whether chicken, beef or lamb. This yoghurt based sauce is not only good for shawarma but also as pita dip, salad dressing and many more!
Just like tzatziki, spicy mayo also a lot of uses. For those sushi lovers out there, I think you call it by sriracha mayo. This pink-spicy sauce is so easy to make with literally just two ingredients needed. It’s entirely up to you if you want this in your shawarma but for those who want more punch, this is what you need.
