Recipe's preparation

    Salt Exfoliation and Steam
  1. This dish is much easier to make than this recipe seems

  2. First take the bunch of spring onions and cut the roots and about 4cm of the tips off and reserve for the chicken. Then cut the whites from the greens. Keep the whites for the red sauce and the green ends for the green sauce. Separate a few stalks of the greens to garnish the soup at the end.

  3. Trim the fat around the bum and neck of the chook and place in the freezer, to use for the rice.

     

    Rinse your chook in a clean sink then massage the handful of salt into the skin and exfoliate your chook. Yes exfoliate it! This will yield a springy clean skin. Rinse well including inside the cavity.

     

  4. In your mixing bowl combine the spring onion roots and tips as well as the ginger and vinegar. Puree on for 5-7 secs/speed 9 or until broken down to a course paste.

     

    Rub this paste inside the cavity of your chook and place breast side down in the Varoma base with the lid underneath to catch drips.

     

    Leave for at least an hour to come to room temperature if you feel comfortable doing so. Or at least while you prepare everything else. 

  5. Rice Prep
  6. Wash the rice until the water runs clear. Leave the rice to soak for ten minutes before straining into the basket and leaving to drain.

  7. In the mixing bowl chop the reserved chicken fat 5 secs/speed 6

     

    then add the vegetable oil and sauté for 3 mins/Varoma/speed 2.

     

  8. Add the garlic, shallots and ginger and chop 5 sec.s/speed 6. Scrape down and repeat if needed. It should be finely diced.

     

    Add the rice and sauté for 3 mins/Varoma//speed 2.Counter-clockwise operation

     

    Tip back into the basket and set aside. Give the bowl a quick rinse.

  9. Green Sauce
  10. Add all the ingredients except the broth to the mixing bowl and puree 5 secs/speed 7

     

    Scrape down and puree 5 secs./speed 9. Repeat if needed to make as smooth a paste as you can.

     

    Scrape into a serving dish and set aside.When the chicken is cooked you can add the broth to thin the sauce.

     

    No need to wash the bowl for the next sauce. 

  11. Red Sauce
  12. Add all the ingredients except the broth to the mixing bowl and puree 5 secs/speed 7

     

    Scrape down and puree 5 secs/speed 9

     

    Scrape into a serving dish and set aside.When the chicken is cooked you can add the broth to thin the sauce.

     

    No need to wash the bowl for the next step. 

     

  13. Steaming the Chook
  14. Add the water and lime juice to the mixing bowl and place the Varoma on top with the chicken,

    Set to steam for 30 mins./Varoma/Speed 2.

  15. Add the basket of rice to the mixing bowl and using tongs carefully turn the chook over making sure you tip the liquid in the cavity into the bowl.

     

    Set to steam for 15 mins/Varoma/speed 2

  16. Remove the rice with the spatular and place into your Thermo Server while you set the chook to cook for another 15 mins./Varoma/speed 2

     

    Tip the chook so the liquid in the cavity runs into the bowl then remove the Varoma with the chook and set aside to rest.

  17. Serving & Say Sauce
  18. Pour the stock directly into small serving bowls but reserve enough to thin the green/red sauces (this is optional).

    Leave 2 tablespoons in the bowl for the soya sauce.

  19. Add all the Soya Sauce ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix for 5 secs/speed 6. Set aside in a serving bowl.

  20. Chop your chook Chinese style, into bite size pieces on the bone. I find a pair of kitchen shears works well if you don’t have a cleaver. 

     

    Lay alternating slices of tomato and cucumber on small plates and arrange the chopped chicken slightly overlapping the vege. Drizzle some of the soya sauce over the sliced chook.

     

    Grease a small bowl or ramekin with toasted sesame seed oil and pack with rice. Tip out your moulded rice next to the chicken.

     

    Garnish the soups with the reserved thinly sliced spring onion.

     

    Serve the chicken and rice with your Green, Red and Soya Sauces and the soup.

Tip

You don't have to make all three sauces, but it is outstanding with them

And its easy... just seems long 

 

Left over rice can be used for fried rice. 

 

Left over sauces can keep in the fridge for up to two weeks and served on the side of other asian dishes, used in asian style dressings or added to stir fry's.

    I just realised that I was quite new to the tmx back then and now realised cooking times need to be adjusted for the TM5.  I still talk about this dish tmrc_emoticons.)

    Tried this today, with all 3 sauces.  Didn't  quite taste like mums but the flavours were there tmrc_emoticons.) yum.  It was a hit with us and my old man!  so that is a good sign.  I think i may need to tweak the cooking times?  Rice seemed a bit over cooked.  but otherwise yummy still! Good work!
