Wrap the edges with cling film or oiled paper and cover the top. After keeping it in the refrigerator for 1 hour to marinate, put it in the freezer and leave it for 8-10 hours.
Take the meat doner from the deep freezer on the kitchen counter. Hold it from the middle part and slice it thinly so that it is directly proportional to the number of people. Make sure the meat slices are thin.
Fry by turning inside out in a non-stick preheated Teflon pan.
For the tomato sauce; Heat the olive oil and butter in a small saucepan. Add the pepper paste and fry for 1-2 minutes.
After adding tomato puree, water and granulated sugar, cook for 5 minutes on low heat.
Cut the nail pita into cubes after bringing them to a slightly crispy consistency in the preheated oven.
Melt the butter in the pan where you fry the meat to be used in the service. Add water and mix. Take the pita cubes and mix until the water is absorbed.
Take the pitas that are flavored with butter and absorb the juice on the serving plate. Pour some tomato sauce on it and place the meat slices on it. Serve hot without waiting with the addition of tomato sauce and whipped yogurt.
