Let us understand about the origin of this amazing dish.
History Of Doner Kebab
Some believe that Doner Kebab was first introduced in 1972 in Berlin, by a Turkish guest worker named Kadir Nurman. He started selling this delicious dish in West Berlin, near the Bahnhof Zoo.
At 26, Nurman emigrated from Turkey to Stuttgart in 1960 as part of a major initiative in West Germany at the time to increase its number of workers. Six years later, Nurman came to Berlin to work in the printing press but quickly realized that there weren’t many substantial options for busy German workers looking for a quick lunch.
Taking his idea of doner kebab as we know it today from the typical Turkish royal meal of meat kebabs served on a plate with rice and vegetables, Nurman wanted to make this tasty dish more portable. So, he just wrapped these ingredients in a kind of bread known as durum wheat and this is how the doner kebab was born.
Just like every other world-famous dishes that hold cultural significance relating to different countries, there are several claims of the origin of doner kebab as well. Several individuals and cultures assert it’s invention.
Other theories, that claim to have invented Doner Kebab is from a person named Nevzat Salim. He is a Turkish man and claims that he first sold these kebabs with his son Mehmet Aygun (a fellow Berliner) in 1969 in a small town named Reutlingen.
Doesn’t matter who invented Doner Kebab or where it originally came from, one thing that cannot be ignored about this tasty dish is, Doner Kebab has a great influence on Germany’s food culture. And also, it is one of the major factors that drives Germany’s large Turkish population to easily integrate into the European food lifestyle.
Döner takes its name from the roasting pan used to cook meat stacked vertically, which is then sliced very thinly. This variety of fast food is then wrapped in bread or lavash wrap and stuffed with chopped onions, parsley, tomatoes and foil for easy consumption on the go.
