• When it is time to cook, take out the frozen döner let it sit for 5 minutes.
• Carefully, cut thin slices (as thin as you can). Don’t try to slice all the mixture at once, work in batches. You can prepare each portion at a time so you can cook the slices before they are thawed (you can deepfreeze the rest of the döner again for later. Don’t place it in the freezer if it is thawed).
• Heat a large frying pan on medium heat and melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter.
• Place the doner slices on the hot pan and cook both sides until they are browned. Don’t try to flip before one side is cooked.
• Cook rest of the slices with the rest of the butter.
