Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

    Lamb Saag/Saagwala
  1. Add Cummin, Coriander and Fenugreek seeds to TM bowl and roast for 2mins, 100 deg, speed 1, then mill for 2 mins, speed 8. Set aside in a bowl. (I often don't bother lol!)

    Add silverbeet into bowl to jsut under ther max line (should be about half). Chop for 10 sec on speed 5 mixing with spatula.
    Cook for 3 mins, 100 deg, speed 3 to reduce volume, then add the rest of the silverbeet and chop for 10 sec on speed 5, mixing with spatula.
    Cook for 10 mins, 100 deg, speed 2 and then set aside in simmering basket to drain. (sometimes I don't bother doing this either if I'm in a hurry!)

    Add green shallot ends, ginger and chilli to TM bowl and chop for 5 sec on speed 6, then scrape down sides.

    Add milled spices (if you set them aside), garam masala, tumeric, asafoetida and garlic oil to TM bowl and saute for 4 mins, 100 deg, speed 1.

    Add silverbeet (if you drained it), cashews, tomatoes, stock paste, coriander and water (I take it up to jsut nelow the max fill level)
