We had this for our last barbecue party and it was a hit. Everyone loved the burst of flavours in their mouth when they had these beauties.

Here’s the step by step recipe for you all;

Preparation Time 15 minutes
Inactive Time 60 minutes

Cooking Time 15-20 minutes
Servings 4
Main Ingredient Portobello Mushrooms
Main Equipment  Gas Oven Tandoor or Barbecue Grill
Course Starter
Level Of Cooking Medium


  • Portobello Mushrooms  12
  • Finely Chopped Ginger  1 tablespoon
  • Finely Chopped Garlic  1 tablespoon
  • Olive Oil  2 tablespoons
  • Salted Butter  2 tablespoons
  • Grated Mozzarella Cheese  1 cup
  • Dried Oregano  1/2 teaspoon
  • Red Chilli Flakes  1/2 teaspoon
  • Black Pepper Powder  1/2 teaspoon
  • Peri Peri Sauce with Wild Herbs or Chilli Sauce  4 tablespoons (used to marinate the mushrooms)
  • Salt  to taste


Step 1
Wash the Portobello Mushrooms well and de-stem them. For marinating the mushrooms, take them in a box/container, apply salt, black pepper powder, peri peri/chilli sauce, finely chopped ginger and garlic and olive oil on them. Close the lid of the container and give the container a nice shake so that all the ingredients mix well. Set aside for an hour.

Step 2
Pre-heat the Gas-Oven Tandoor or Barbecue Grill for 5-10 minutes before cooking (very essential to get a nice smoky flavour). Once it’s nice and hot place the portobello mushrooms (cups facing down, as they release juices at first) and cover it up (if using a gas oven tandoor) for 10 minutes.roasted-portobello-mushrooms-being-roasted1-ics

Step 3
After 10 minutes check the mushrooms. Brush them with butter, turn the side, brush the other side with butter and let them cook for 5-7 minutes to get a nice smoky flavour. After 5-7 minutes, turn the side, check if the mushrooms are well cooked. Now,  sprinkle some grated mozzarella cheese on the portobello cups.roasted-portobello-mushrooms-being-roasted2-ics
