      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Pastry

    Add flour (270 grams), oil (25 grams), salt (5 grams) and water (165 grams) to bowl. 


    Mix 7 seconds/speed 8 Check to see if dough is forming, if it's still a little dry add a dribble of water and remix 5 seconds/speed 8 (if dough is formed skip this step)


    I then use my spatula to form a loose dough ball in the bowl. 


    Dough mode 5 minutes.


    Remove dough from bowl and wrap in plastic wrap or a thermo mat to rest for at least 1/2 hour. 




    While dough is resting add peeled and quartered onion, ginger coins (20 grams) and deseeded chilli to bowl 7 seconds/speed 7


    Scrape down bowl, if there is any large chunks remaining 4 seconds/speed 7


    Add cumin seeds (1 teaspoon), and Ghee or butter (40 grams), chilli flakes (half to one teaspoon depending on taste). 


    5 minutes/100 degrees/slowest speed. 


    Add turmeric (one good pinch), lemon juice (10 grams), salt (1 teaspoon), coriander powder (1 and a 1/2 teaspoons). 6 seconds/speed 5


    Add peas (2 handfuls). 3 minutes/90 degrees/reverse/slowest speed.


    Add mashed potato. 8 seconds/reverse/speed 4


    Put into a separate bowl and allow to cool.



    Once dough is ready divide into 20 even pieces, roll out circles of dough.  Place a tablespoon of cooled filling into the centre of a circle and fold over (like an apple turnover), brush the edges with enough water to make the dough stick (I use a finger dipped into a cup of water to do this), crimp the edges together with a fork or your fingers. 


    Add the curry puffs to a deep fryer or a deep saucepan or wok with enough oil to cover curry puffs - note the oil should be room temperature with no heat added at this stage. Heat the oil on high and cook until they turn a nice golden brown. Remove from oil and put on some absorbent paper to drain. 




    Add garlic clove to bowl 5 seconds/speed 9. Scrape down bowl and repeat.


    Add all other ingredients to bowl - Apple cider vinegar (80 grams), water (80 grams), Brown sugar (25 grams), salt 1 teaspoon. 


    Mix 1 minute/speed 5


    12 minutes/100 degree/ speed one MC off. 


    Serve with Curry Puffs.

    Just a warning, these are Australian Thai... not what you would get at an authentic restaurant. Not a lot of spice or flavour, and we didn’t like the sauce, it was very vinagery. A very kid-friendly puff though!

    My 10yo made these for the family last night - she loves them so much that she takes them cold for lunch at school (they freeze well)

  • Nice. Probably would up the

    Probably would up the spices next time as the filling was nice, if a little bland. I used ghee in the pastry and it puffed up beautifully. Made enough for 6 people for a light lunch.

    Thanks for the recipe tmrc_emoticons.-)
