    Looking for a German recipe

    Fri Nov 18, 2005 9:38 pm Groupie
    I was speaking to a friend who moved to Germany last night and she was telling me about the food there. One of things she mentioned that she eats really often and absolutely adores - and which she says is quite prolific around her city - is something called "doener". I don't know the actual spelling, it could be dohner/dooner too. I tried all these variations on zaar and not a single recipe comes up! Does anyone know what on earth I am talking about? icon_confused.gif

    It's called a Döner or Döner Kebab. Here in England they call it Doner Kebab (they are not as good as the ones in Germany though, nowhere near in fact), its spiced lamb meat, grilled on a spit in layers, sliced and served with salad and dressing in a pita type bread pocket or on a flat bread. There are usually variations available such as Chicken Döner or Döner with Feta.
    It's of Turkish origin and I think that is one of ther reasons why it is so widely available in Germany, as they are so many Turkish people living there. I know why you friend likes it, I always make sure I have one when I'm over there visiting my family, as they are so good. Here in the UK I only ever have chicken doner, as the meat one is not very good here.

    You can make your own though, it would be a bit difficult if you haven't got a rotisserie oven, but you could make gyros instead it tastes quite similar.

    I haven't tried any of these recipes, but they would should come close....

    Here is a link to a real Döner recipe on another website...

    Thank you, Sylvie! It does seem to be very similar to gyros.

    It is, although Gyros should be Greek icon_biggrin.gif But most Germans didn't care about the name icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif The only thing counts is: it is scrumptious. You can't go shopping in a twon in Germany, where there is no "Döner" or "Gyros". icon_biggrin.gif As Sylvie mentioned a "true" Döner is difficult to make, but Gyros is very close to it..
