      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!

Accessories you need



This is a very mild version of Choo Chee. If you like it hot, use sambal oelek instead of sambal paste and add 1 TBSP red curry paste. And add a fresh red chilli with the garlic.

I timed this recipe using frozen prawns, if cooking from raw they will need less time.

This recipe can be doubled!

Cook your rice beforehand and keep it warm in your thermoserver.

Would be great as a vegetarian dish as well, just replace the meat with more veg.
