      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

    Kashmiri Curry


    Place onion into TM bowl.  Chop 3 sec/Sp4.  Scrape down sides.


    Add olive oil to the TM bowl and cook for 3 mins/100ºC/Sp 1.




    Add butterfly attachment and diced chicken.  Cook for 2 mins/100ºC/Sp1/Reverse.




    Add hard veges (celery and pumpkin), cook for 2 ½ mins/100ºC/Sp 0.5/Reverse.


    While machine is spinning add Kashmiri Curry Spice Blend.




    Add red lentils,1 ½ cups water, diced tomatoes, zucchini, and eggplant.  Cook for 15 mins/100ºC/Sp 0.5/Reverse/MC on.

    My butterfly decided to detach at this point in time (upon starting the 15 min cook) and I couldn’t get it reattached, so I decided to press on without it.

  5. Quinoa


    While Curry is cooking, add 1 cup quinoa into a microwave safe bowl, add 2 cups water to the bowl and microwave for 15 mins or until water has been evaporated (mine needed longer than usual 10 mins).  Leave to sit for 2 mins before fluffing with a fork.



    Taste curry, if seasoning is needed, add salt and pepper and give a quick stir with spatula.


    Divide steamed quinoa amongst serving bowls, add curry on top and garnish with coriander leaves.







*** Omit chicken for a vegetarian dish


*** I used the spice blend from Mudgeeraba Spices and Curry Blends, called Kashmiri Chicken Almond & Raisin Curry Blend.  Just use whatever curry blend you have on hand. This is just the particular one I used.


*** Change the veges if you wish. Add sweet potato instead of pumpkin and omit eggplant if you don't have it.


*** Curry will keep in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2 months.
