Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Place halved onions, garlic, and peeled knob of ginger and chop 3 seconds/speed 7, scrape down the sides of the bowl and repeat.

    2. Add Oil, cumin, turmeric, salt, chilli (optional) and saffron and cook 4 minutes/Varoma/speed 1.

    3. Add tomatoes, and water into the mixing bowl and place in the Thermomix Basket.

    4. Place cinnamon sticks, and chopped sweet potato to the TM Basket and cook 15 minutes/Varoma/Backwards/speed 2.

    5. Place Fish into TM Basket, lid on and measuring cup in, but if you would like to make extra fish, place the rest of it in the Varoma and put into place. Cook fish 11 - 13 minutes/Varoma/speed 2.

    6. While cooking, place rinsed chick peas and chopped apricots into Thermoserver.

    7. Remove TM Basket with spatula and pour ingredients over chick peas and apricots.

    8. Place honey into mixing bowl and stir 20 seconds/speed 2.

    9. Pour sauce into Thermomserver and mix all ingredients together careful so the fish doesn't break up too much, season to taste and leave in the server for 5 minutes with the lid on. (this step is important as it allow some of the fish flavour to permeate the sauce)

    10. Serve with plain Couscous or Jasmine rice and garnish with parsley/coriander and shelled pistachios.

    This was the 1st non-Cookidoo recipe that I have made since getting our Thermie about 10 days ago. I was a bit nervous trying to follow the instructions, but it was easy once I realised I needed to put the lid and measuring cup on every time Wink.

    The stew was delicious but I used a bowl instead of a Thermoserver, which I don't have. But....the next day, it was absolutely stunning. I guess it needs to soak up the juices. Next time I will use a different fish - someone gave us mullet but I could really imagine the difference if I used swordfish or ling.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. Am looking fwd to trying more from you.

    I wanted to try a new recipe for some Rankin Cod I had and I'm glad it was this one. It is a nice mildly flavoured stew that even my young daughters loved, despite one saying she 'hated' it based on appearance. I didn't include chilli, chickpeas and cinnamon sticks due to various reasons but still worked out. I even cooked rice in it straight after, without washing, which gave it a lovely yellow colour. Idid find it tricky to understand some of the instructions though. Will definitely be on the menu again. Thanks for sharing!
