      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.

If the sauce is too spicy for the kids (or yourself!) - I have added tomato ketchup to it to take the edge off tmrc_emoticons.-)

    Love this recipe!! I often just cook the sauce by itself and freeze it in snap lock bags. My son takes a bag to work to pour over what ever protein & carb combo he's having for lunch (he's a gym junky). It also works well over simple poached eggs on toast.

    This is so easy and delicious! We used twice the amount of chicken, which was good because it makes a lot of curry sauce.
