A bahn mi is a vietnamese sandwich made with french bread a protein and a veggie. usually they come with a pickel made of carrot and daikon, cilantro, jalapenos. a delicious sounding sandwich already but i had to put a little twist to it.
malahi chicken bahni mi
mango, daikon, carrot pickel
chutney hoison mayo
when you hear the words pickled mangoa, think past achar and your standard hamburger pickel. i used classic vietnamese style pickel added some cloves, black pepper, garam masala and jalapenos. you have a sweet and acidic kick in the sandwich. easy to make but it'll stink up your fridge. (daikon is smelly)
for the mayo i made a concentrate of a regular chutney. made it really spicy, mixed it with mayo and added a hoison for an additional sweet kick.
finished it off with a boneless chicken thighs marinated in a malahi chicken marinade and smoked in a classic dum style. chopped it up into small pieces, so it's easy to eat and put it a together with some cilantro, onions, jalapeno and an umami blast.

just take different concepts and put your own familiar flavors into it and something delicious should come out.
