Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 5 image
    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.
    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!

    Has anybody cooked these in an air fryer?

    Loved, loved them. Thanks. I found the fluid levels high, as per previous comments, but, didn't adjust the recipe. Left overnight in the fridge, perfect consistency the next day.
    Looking forward to trialling different versions. X

    These were so good, used tinned tomatoes and left in fridge overnight, were a bit soft to crumb but still stayed together.
    Will be a regular in my house, thanks for the recipe.

    Yummy Arancini Recipe!

    Made these this week for an event and they were a big hit. I did find the mixture really wet so I drained half the liquid and they worked great.

    Thanks for the recipe
