Remove the seeds from half the chillies. Blitz all the ingredients except the parsley and simmer until slightly thickened, season and adjust as needed. Add the parsley once cooled.
Lay out the sliced seitan on a dry tea towel to absorb the moisture, season with shawarama spice mix and sea salt. Flash fry on a medium-high heat until slightly browned, remove and drain.
Warm khobez bread and assemble your shawarma with desired amounts of garnish.
