This wrap or roll whatever you can say, me and my husband is ready to eat any time. This is a Mediterranean food and is like one pot meal. One roll is normally enough for a meal.
Shawarma, doner kebab, durum, gyro are all same thing with very minor differences in how they are served. This is believed to be a Turkish way of making kebab which spread around different countries in Europe and Middle East and got different names. It is very interesting to know the history of this food and how it got different names in different countries based on their style of pronunciation and way of serving this. I found an interesting article in the following link:

Doner is derived from the Turkish word “dön-mek” which means ‘spins’. That is why traditionally it is cooked in a rotisserie either vertically or horizontally.
At home, it is quite difficult to follow the original style of stacking up meat slices one above the other and then shred them as they are cooked in vertical cooking element. This is primarily served in pita bread, but I used wrap. So I followed a simple recipe as follows:

Mix well and remove from heat.
Beat eggs in a pot and add baking powder, 1 tbsp soda water and salt and keep it under lid for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes heat butter in a pan. Beat the egg mix again and pour on the pan.
Keep it for 2-3 minutes. Now sprinkle some crushed black pepper and chilli flakes.
When it is cooked, take a flat plate and keep on top of the pan. Now turn it over carefully so that the egg is separated from the pan and comes on the plate.
Now put the stuffing on the fried egg and wrap it gently.
