      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.

Recipe's preparation

  1. Add red onion, garlic, ginger, 100grams of the lemongrass paste, turmeric, coriander and oil to the bowl, blend for 7 seconds, speed 8 (MC on). Scrape down the bowl and repeat. Scrape down the bowl and fry 6mins 100deg Speed 2, MC off.

    Add coconut cream, chicken stock, water, soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar and lime juice and mix 10 seconds Speed 3.

    Add chicken & veggies to the bowl, ensuring they’re covered by the sauce. Cook 25mins 100deg REV Speed 1 or until veg are cooked to your liking.

    Stir through remaining 20gm lemongrass paste (this makes it really fragrant) and a good pinch of himalayan salt and taste test. If its a little strong add a splash of coconut cream or water.

    Serve with rice or noodles.
