      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.

    7. check potatoes and if cooked place into thermoserver. check meat and depending on which cut you used you can continue to cook for another 15-20 minutes with the basket on top so that it keeps reducing.

    8. once meat is finished remove varoma and set aside.

    9. Add peas and cook 3-5mins 100 deg Counter-clockwise operation reverse, speed 1 to heat through

    Cooked this one tonight...I tell you the smell coming for the kitchen was amazeballs!!  I also put the stock in with the tomotoes and coconut milk, was a little runny but the sauce was great over the rice etc...I'd definately cook up again...first time for me using the Varoma too (I admit to being a little scared of it ha ha)

    Delicious! This Curry was a huge hit in our house last night.I had to cook the potatoes for an extra 20 minutes but probably because I didn't cut them small enough.  Also, I wasn't sure what to do with the TM Vegetable Stock Paste, so added it at the same time as the tomatoes and coconut milk.  Thank you for this recipe, it's really hearty, tasty and not too spicy!
