The Arabs gave us their version of coffee, their version of tea and their version of religious fundamentalism (it’s no fun and they – the religious zealots – are mental!). They can proudly lay a claim to many things but they should not be prouder for anything other than what I dub the “best food” on Planet Earth!
I’m talking about the Shawarma sandwich. It’s cut up peices of heaven, rolled up in a khuboos or bread or whatever kind of roti you get, depending on where you get yours cooked. Cochin & the rest of Kerala have adopted this precious food as one of it’s favourite late evening snack or dinner. I just love them and my belly is full after having a couple of these, washed with a small milkshake down at restaurant near the bus stop. Perfect!
