      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

  1. Weigh lentils in thermoserver on top of TM then add boiling water. Cover and soak for 2-3 hours.
  2. Add onion, ginger and garlic into tmx bowl and chop 3 secs/sp 6, scrape down sides.

  4. Add drained lentils, tomato, stock paste and water and cook 18 mins/100 degrees/Counter-clockwise operation/sp 1.
