Make Shawarma At Home, In A Sandwich Toaster

Shawarma treat

Shawarma has come to stay in Nigeria. It is so loved by

both children and Adults. I remember my girls in Boarding telling us that when we come on "The School's visiting day,"  "Shawarma" must be part of the menu. Their friends won't take rice or soft drinks, but, can't resist shawarma. I am too local a Naija breed, may be, that's why I am not  a fan. Sorry.

This Shawarma was made Courtesy Lahmow's Recipe. When I posted on Lunch Box Ideas For Busy Parents, I asked for Shawarma ideas, I wanted to be able to make my shawarma with the ingredients I like, and leave out the ones I do not like. 
On the comment section, Lahmow explained how she makes her shawarma at home.  I got these ingredients, tried my best and decided to post it here so that kind  corrections can pour in. I plan on another "shawarma making journey"
However, that
won't be possible without taking corrections on this firat attempt. will do that only after you guys' corrections o.

Hi Lahmow, Can you too please look at this shawarma and let me know where I need to make corrections?

The kids saw the shawarma in their lunch boxes, they ate some and brought back the rest. Why/ They say my shawarma was too big. The taste of shawarma was there and all, but I think there is room for improvement.
