      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!

Use as many whole spices as you have as the flavour is better. However, you can substitute whole for ground (and vice versa) depending on what's in your spice cupboard. Adjust the quantities accordingly.

Use in your favourite chicken, lamb, seafood or vegetable korma recipe, or divide into 2-3 freezer containers and freeze until required.

Adding a coupleof tablespoons of natural yoghurt and a handful of fresh, chopped corriander leaves at the end of cooking your Korma adds a nice flavourful touch.

This is my favoutite Korma blend, which I first created and listed on the Forum Thermomix in July of 2013.
