      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. Add 1.5 litres water to TM bowl. Insert TM basket in TM bowl. Add eggplant and cook 12min/Varoma/speed2.

    I have just tried this with mixed results but would love to know what i did wrong.  I am still a bit new at this varoma steaming so would appreciate help.  At step 9 'add all remaining ingredients', does that mean to put the eggplant and leaves back in with the rest?  And also how long to mix and what speed.  I would like to try it again.  Thanks for help
