Shawarma vs. Doner
Shawarma is the most common Middle Eastern dish, in comparison to doners. The dish’s name is derived from an Arabic word meaning “turning,” as it’s prepared with a stack of meat grilling 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
Variety of meats
Shawarma was originally made from lamb and mutton meat.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. However, what remains staple is the pieces of lamb fat between each layer to keep the meat juicy.

For doner kebabs, the original recipe uses lamb or mutton too. As the dish became more popular, many varieties of meat were used to make it suitable for all kinds of customers. Pork is the only protein that can’t be used in any of these dishes.

Cooking Method
Shawarma is made by stacking layers of meat on a rotisserie and allowing the rod to rotate. Once the outer layer is cooked, it’s shaved off and used to make a wrap or a platter.

On the other hand, doner kebabs are cooked in many ways; they can be made on skewers on the fire or coals, oven, or fried in a pan. 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. Kebabs, on the other hand, are served on skewers and plates.

Topping and Garnishing
Shawarma is commonly served with tahini, hummus, pickled turnips, and amba. These condiments are essential for great shawarma.

On the other hand, Doner kebabs are served with a side of tomatoes, pickled cucumbers, onions, chili, tzatziki sauce, and yogurt.
