Dunster needs his dosage of “Shoarma in Pita Bread” once in a while and he wanted it again a few days ago. There was some leftover shoarma meat and I’d seen a budget recipe in a supermarket magazine just the week before. Thus, Shoarma, Cabbage & Mozzarella Tart came into existence.. 🙂

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180C. Line a square or round baking pan with aluminium foil and then baking paper.
  2. Put puff pastries slightly overlapping on lined baking pan with edges slightly up the sides. Press seams to seal tightly onto overlapping pastry.
  3. Heat oil in a wok and fry onions and capsicum for a few mins.
  4. Add shoarma meat and stirfry together for abt 3 mins.
  5. Then add in cabbage to the mix and fry for another 2 mins.
  6. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Put shoarma and cabbage mix in a strainer above a bowl to strain out the sauce.
  7. Prick pastry with a fork all over (to keep pastry from puffing too much) and sprinkle shredded mozzarella all over puff pastry.
  8. Then spread shoarma meat and cabbage mix on top of mozzarella.
  9. Bake in preheated oven for 15 mins in the middle of oven.
  10. Then cover tart with aluminium foil and bake for a further 10 mins.
  11. Serve immediately with some garlic mayonnaise.

  • Make garlic mayonnaise: 150 ml yogurt, 2 cloves minced garlic, salt, pepper and chopped parsley.
  • Sprinkle grated cheese all over just after baking and grill it for a few mins.
  • Use other green-leafed vegetables instead of cabbage, e.g. andivie, spinach or pak-choi.
