      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. ** You will need a water spray bottle for this recipe.
    Add 250g of water, 5g of sugar and 1 sachet of dried instant yeast to the mixing bowl.
  2. Put the MC into the lid, then the lid on and mixBlend for 2 minutes, 37 degrees, speed 2.
    Now let the mixture sit until it looks frothy, this can take up to 5 minutes.
  3. Next add the 400g of Bakers Flour, 5g of salt and 10g of oil to the mixing bowl.
  4. Put the MC into the lid, then the lid on and mixBlend for 6 secionds speeed 6, then scrape down the sides.
  5. Now use the knead function Dough mode and knead the dough for 2 minutes. Next leave the lid on and MC in and let it sit to rest for minimum of 15 minutes.
  6. Use the knead functionDough mode again and knead for 30 seconds to knock it down then tip out the dough onto a floured dough mat. Now roll the dough into a ball and break it into 6 portions (each will weigh roughly 110gms)
  7. Roll each of the 6 portions into balls and cover with a damp teatowel.
  8. Heat on medium heat a large non stick fry pan (I used a 28-30cm one). Now take one portion of the dough, making sure you have flour on the surface, and using a rolling pin roll out as thin as you can into a 28cm circle and then carefully put the rolled out piece of dough into the pan to cook. While it is cooking start to roll out the next one but keep the other dough balls covered with the tea towel.
  9. After roughly 1 minute (depends on the heat in your pan) your dough should be rising with little bubbles or even one larger bubble like a balloon, turn over to cook the other side once it gets lots of bubbles.
  10. Cook the other side of the bread until you see it rise also. Get another round frypan or some sort of a round pot to put it once it's cooked.
  11. When it's cooked both sides, pop it into the other pan and spray lightly with water (this creates steam) and pop the lid on straight away as the steam will help keep them soft.
  12. These are best served warm, they will also freeze or can be stored in the fridge and warmed up before using them. I use these as Kebab breads.
