Green curry prawn Risotto



6 portion(s)

Have Ready:

  • 1 Medium size brown onion, peeled and quatered
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 carrot, cut into chunks
  • 50 g green curry paste
  • 250g pure coconut cream
  • 300g Aborio Rice
  • 600g water
  • 500g frozen green prawn tails, (see tip)
  • 40g TM veggie stock paste
  • 150g frozen peas
  • corriander leaves to taste, (approx 3 Tbsp)
  • 6
    Preparation 5min
  • 7
  • 8
    • Appliance TM 5 image
      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Tip 1. I use frozen peas and frozen prawns for this recipe, as it was designed for a last minute "what have I got in the fridge" for a quick meal recipe. To use fresh prawns and/or peas, reduce the cooking time in step 4 to 2 min. alternatively you could use corn if you don't like peas.


Tip 2. The green curry paste I use is VERY hot, but you can put more or less to adjust to your own taste for this recipe. (you might note that I did not saute the onions or curry paste as is usual, I found in this recipe I could easily miss this step and it did not adversley effect the flavour. You could add 20g oil and saute the onion, garlic and curry paste together for 2min on 100°c if you wanted to tmrc_emoticons.) )


Tip3. I can't stand capsicum, but for those of you that love it, it would be a lovely addition. Use approx 1/2 green capsicum cut into quaters and add with carrots in step 2.


Tip 4. For another qucik meal option, I have used left over cooked chicken that I shreded and added in step 4 in place of the prawns (reduce cooking time to 2 min in this step, as the chicken is already cooked and only needs to be heated up)


Tip 5. No need to peel the carrot, just wash, top and tail, and chop into chunks.

    Using fresh green prawns and otherwise following the recipe, I really enjoyed this meal. Unfortunately the curry was too hot for my husband and he couldn't eat it so I'll have to reduce the green curry paste in future. Green prawns come out cooked perfectly in the Thermomix Thanks for the recipe.

    I  used about 3/4 sushi rice and it seemed ok. Added tinned pineapple and fish sauce and a squuxe of lime to "thai" it up tmrc_emoticons.) Hubby loved, toddlers hated, I liked. Thanks for this recipe. It was easy and quick and I'll use it again tweaking to our tastes.

    This was delicious thank you and I'll be using this again ! I used king prawns and it needed cooking 4 mins longer but we don't have theCounter-clockwise operation blade so just did this on the normal 1 setting so that might have made the difference!
