Dürüm is a Turkish wrap filled typically with a doner kebab and the wrap is made from Lavash or Yufka flatbreads. Apart from the doner Keba, lot of other vegetables can also be added to make this a complete meal.
While I had a couple of other dishes for D, I kept coming back to this for various reasons. The other dish that I had shortlisted was Dakos, which was really so simple like Tomatoes and Cheese topped with Rusks from Greece. Since I was also particular to pick one from different countries, I had to come back to Durum.
The filling is most the meat based Kebab and I was inspired by this recipe and wanted to go with a vegetarian Kebab with all the other addons. So I used Vaishali’s Masoor Dal Kebabs and used the other frills that went with this. The many recipes I checked on this street food, had even regular Indian Roti being used for this wrap.
So I decided to kill two birds and went with my choice of flatbread and added masoor kebabs, fried potatoes with onions, lettuce, some extra protein and sauces. This wrap is very filling and can easily make it up for dinner or lunch. I had a mayo served on the side along with yoghurt sauce. It was perfect and Konda wanted more! Anyway, I think any wrap with a lentil kebab and all other dishes surely make a dish tastes so good!
One interesting factor about street food is you can always improvise on that make it suit to your palette. I so enjoyed having this for a meal. The flatbread I used for this will be revealed later and updated.
