      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.  Place garlic, ginger and onion in thermomix and blitz for 10 seconds speed 5.Closed lid

  2. Add two teaspoons of olive oil and saute 5 min, 50 degrees Gentle stir setting.

    Meanwhile chop the chicken breast into cubes.

  3. Place chicken breast in bowl, add all herbs and spices and cook for 10 minutes on Varoma. Counter-clockwise operationGentle stir settingClosed lid Scrape down the bowl.

  4. Once the chicken has 'cooked' add the pumpkin, peas and passata and cook for 20mins on Varoma. Counter-clockwise operationGentle stir settingClosed lid

    This is quite a dry curry, if you like your curries a little more watery, add  some more passata.

  5.  Add the evaporated milk and stir this in for 3 seconds. Gentle stir settingClosed lidCounter-clockwise operation


    Meanwhile, cook the rice and pappadums. The healthiest way to cook these is spray them with canola oil spray, and microwave for 1 minute and 10 seconds.


Accessories you need



The chicken will shred, if you prefer chunky chicken add the butterfly whisk.

Any vegetable can be used, as long as they are chopped smallish, the pumpkin does break down and adds to the thickness of the puree. I throw in whatever vegetables that are 0 smart points.

For additional flavour, chopped coriander is a lovely addition. Enjoy tmrc_emoticons.)
