Recipe's preparation

    Rice
  1. Place rice and enough water to cover into ThermoServer or bowl and soak for 24 hours.

  2. Drain rice through Varoma dish and discard soaking water.

  3. Create a hole or well (approx. 8 cm) in the middle of the drained rice in the Varoma dish to allow the steam to circulate. Set Varoma with rice aside.

  4. Paste
  5. Place all paste ingredients into mixing bowl and blend 15 sec/speed 9.

  6. Transfer half of the paste into a bowl and stir through salmon pieces. Set aside to marinate. Transfer the remaining paste into a separate bowl and set aside.

  7. Curry
  8. Without rinsing mixing bowl, place coconut oil into mixing bowl and heat 2 min/100°C/speed 1.

  9. Add reserved paste (without the fish) to mixing bowl. Place Varoma with rice into position and cook 4 min/100°C/speed 2. Set Varoma aside.

  10. Add pumpkin, coconut milk and lemongrass into mixing bowl, place Varoma with rice back into position and cook 10 min/Varoma/counter-clockwise operation/speed 1, stir rice with a fork to separate slightly and cook for a further 10 min/Varoma/counter-clockwise operation/speed 1.

  11. Remove Varoma and check to see if rice is cooked. Stir rice with fork, check it is evenly cooked, and set aside.

  12. Add fish with paste marinade to mixing bowl and cook 3 min/Varoma/counter-clockwise operation/Gentle stir setting, or until salmon is cooked to your liking.

  13. To serve, remove lemongrass and discard. Place rice onto plates, using a cup to mould the rice for presentation. Add a serving of curry on the side, garnished with finely sliced spring onion.

Tip

· If you end up with leftover curry sauce, make it into a soup the next day by adding liquid chicken stock (or chicken stock paste and water), a little coconut milk, fresh coriander and a dash of tamari or soy sauce. Stir in any leftover rice to make a thicker soup.
· You can alter the amount of rice cooked depending of the number of people you are cooking for. Note that cooking times will vary.
· Presoaking your glutinous rice is essential. The amount of time you allow your rice to soak will affect the cooking times. If your rice requires longer to cook, finish cooking your salmon in step 18 then transfer curry into a ThermoServer to keep warm. Place 500 g water into mixing bowl and place Varoma with rice into position. Cook 5-10 min/Varoma/speed 2, or until rice is evenly cooked. Serve as per recipe above.

    Beautiful composition of flavours and textures. The curry paste was quick to put together and amazingly fragrant. This time I stuck to pumpkin but I'd be happy to experiment with many other veg; I used monkfish fillets, & also like the suggestion of using chicken. Thanks Jo!

    Quite a different method for a curry paste with excellent flavours. I used a firm white fish and also added other vegetables at the end. tomatoes, zucchin and beans. Very versatile sauce

    Tasty and a good way to cook fish. My older daughter loved it and asked for more but hubby found it too sweet. Make sure to use the correct rice though!

    Submitted by browneyedgirl on 28. January 2016 - 09:18.

    This was one of the most delicious curries I've made in the thermomix. I made it for guests and both adults and children loved it and had seconds. I served mine with normal boiled rice. Thank you Jo. I have your cookbook and love those recipes as well.

  • DELICIOUS! Restaurant quality

    Submitted by joyfortheworld on 24. June 2015 - 18:33.

    DELICIOUS! Restaurant quality I would say. A fantastic recipe!

    I did the sticky rice, but probably wouldn't worry about it next time and just do it normally. I used chicken breast and put it in the Closed lid when I put the veggies/ coconut milk in etc. I added some extra veg. Chicken got a little shredded even on reverse. Could maybe steam it next time instead of doing the sticky rice?

  • Delicious ... I just cooked

    Submitted by Marjorie.rego on 31. August 2014 - 19:52.

    Delicious ... I just cooked normal rice on the stove and cooked the pumpkin for 15 mins and the fish for 4 mins (I used ling fillets). I used jaggery instead of palm sugar and omitted the galangal. Amazing flavour!

  • Wow!!! thanks so much for

    Submitted by LoriO6 on 11. August 2014 - 19:48.

    Wow!!! thanks so much for this recipe Jo! We got hooked on sticky rice while visiting family at the atherton tablelands and now i finally have a recipe - hurrah! When it says to stir the rice, make sure you really move it around as we had one spot that i must have neglected and therefore had some underdone rice. We loved the curry - even the 1yo loved it. It was a race to get to the leftovers the following day. Maybe next time we will try the soup but this time it was all gone before I had a chance.

  • I have made this recipe 3

    Submitted by geewhiz on 8. May 2014 - 20:13.

    I have made this recipe 3 times now.  I was lazy and just made boiled rice on the stove. The soup made, as suggested, with the leftovers, is the best I have ever tasted. In fact its better than the plain curry. Thank you, thankyou, thank you.

  • Fabulous fish curry. My 8

    Submitted by Brendanandnicole on 28. April 2014 - 20:26.

    Fabulous fish curry. My 8 year old said it was his new favourite dinner. We used butter fish which I bought at the farmer's markets & the seller said it was ideal for a curry. Sticky rice was ok but husband told me my rice is better on the stovetop but perhaps I don't have the correct rice. It is organic medium grain white rice? Fabulous recipe regardless, so thanks!

    Submitted by Captain Janeway on 4. February 2014 - 16:24.

    Seriously yummy. I did mock rice instead of the sticky rice, but that is the best curry I have made in the Thermomix thus far. Thank you  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Great recipe. I didn't not do

    Submitted by tonistu on 28. January 2014 - 17:37.

    Great recipe. I didn't not do the rice, due to overnight soaking needed, but curry was great. Best cooked curry I have made so far in thermo. I was starting to lose faith in cooking a great curry/ stew in the thermo, due in most recipes I've tried so far having too much liquid at the end, but not with this one

    Submitted by sevenhuysens on 4. October 2013 - 20:20.

    Great flavour, super yummy! I cooked the pumpkin for a little less and the fish for a little longer. Not convinced it makes 6 portions, my hubby and I ate this tonight and we probably have two portions left over at the most. Thank you so much for posting, I will definitely be making this again.
