      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 adapted from "Food for the Soul Cookbook" by Australian Women's Weekly

I use the @skinnymixer Red Thai Curry Paste recipe which can be found here

Due to allergies in our family, we don't use lemongrass in any of the paste or recipe.

You can get pre-cooked sliced roast duck from Asian roast meat restaurants, just be sure to ask for boneless. For convenience, we use 1 tray of the Peking "Love-A-Duck" Duck Breasts which come with 2 duck breasts with skin on.

    Roasted my own duck and used this sauce. It was realty delicious. I used tinned pineapple instead and added extra coconut milk because I needed more sauce to cover the duck

    Absolutely delicious!
    I served it as a sauce over roasted duck hind quarters. I used what vegetables I had, pakchoy, capsicum, waterchestnuts and bamboo shoots. Smile
