      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). 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!

Recipe's preparation

  1. If using, grate parmesan 10 seconds, speed 8 and set aside in a bowl. Rinse the mixing bowl. Add sweet potato and chop 2sec speed 6. Insert butterfly then add milk and cook 25mins 95deg speed 1. Add butter and reserved cheese and mash 30sec speed 3. Set aside and rinse bowl.

    Add capsicum, onion, carrot, celery and zucchini to the bowl and chop 3 seconds speed 6. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the butter and oil. Cook 8 mins 100deg REV speed 1.

    Add plain flour, curry powder, tomato sauce, soy, worstershire, stock, salt and 100gm water. Mix 10sec speed 3 REV.

    Add mince (whole, don't break it up), submerging it under the sauce. Cook 9mins 100deg speed 1 REV. Mix 20-30 seconds speed 3 REV to break the mince up. Use a spatula to break it up further if required.

    Taste test: if the curry flavour is a little strong, add a little more water, or if it needs to be a bit sweeter add a touch more tomato sauce.

    Pour into a baking dish and top with the sweet potato and bake 180deg C for 30mins. It will become thicker (and less runny) on cooling.

Accessories you need



The cottage pie will thicken once cooled. Its perfect for preparing ahead of time, or to freeze for a quick, healthy dinner.

If you prefer potato mash topping, just use the BCB mash recipe.

This combination of veggies works really well, and they help to thicken the sauce. I've tried others, but these give the best flavour.
