    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. 1. Place sesame oil, chili, garlic and ginger into mixing bowl.

    2. Chop 10 seconds, speed 7.

    3. Scrape down sides.

    4. Cook 2 minutes, Varoma temperature, speed 1.

    5. Add brown sugar, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar to mixing bowl.

    6. Place chicken in steamer basket.

    7. Cook 15 minutes, Varoma temperature, speed 1.

    11. Serve with steamed rice (and greens, if you must).


Accessories you need



4 chicken thigh fillets will serve 2-3 people.

To upscale this recipe to serve more people, simply double the sauce quantity and use as much chicken as required in the Varoma.

This can also be safely made in the TM31.
