Tandoori Portobello Mushrooms 

  • 4 portobello mushrooms; sliced 
  • 4 French baguettes, split lengthwise 
  • 1 tbsp Fijian Masala
  • ½ tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp red chili powder (add less if you like your food mild)
  • 1 tsp turmeric 
  • ¼ cup mustard oil 
  • ½ cup coconut cream
  • 1 ½ tbsp fresh lemon juice 
  • 1 tsp himalayan salt 
  • ¼ cup garlic paste
  • ¼ cup ginger paste 
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise 
  • 2 tbsp sriracha 
  • Cooking spray for bbq 

Pickled Vegetables 

  • ½ cup daikon radish; thinly sliced 
  • ½ cup carrot; shredded 
  • ½ cup Persian cucumbers; thinly sliced 
  • 2 tbs rice wine vinegar (unseasoned)
  • 1 tbs white granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp himalayan salt


  • 1 lime; quartered for garnish
  • ½ cup cilantro with stems 
  • 1 jalapeño; thinly sliced


  1. In a mixing bowl, add portobello, turmeric, red chili powder, Fijian Masala, smoked paprika, mustard oil, coconut cream, lemon juice, ginger, garlic, and salt. Mix well. Cover with foil and let marinate. 
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, add carrots, daikon, cucumber, rice wine vinegar, salt, and sugar. Mix well and let sit for 15 minutes. 
  3. In a small bowl, add mayonnaise and sriracha. Mix well and set aside. 
  4. Preheat barbecue (gas or charcoal). Spray grill with cooking spray to reduce sticking. 
  5. Add marinated portobellos to grill. Turn and cook for 4 minutes on each side.  
  6. Depending upon preference, toast or keep baguette un-toasted. 
  7. Add sriracha mayo spread in baguette, layer barbecued tandoori portobellos, pickled vegetables, cilantro, jalapeño slices, and a squeeze of lime. 
  8. If you’d like your banh mi mild in spice, cut out the seeds of the jalapeño and use less red chili powder in tandoori marinade.
