      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      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. After preparing Mushroom Risotto from BCB place in fridge to cool.

    Once mixture is firm and cool place 3 cups worth into bowl with egg and breadcrumbs and mix together.

    Once completely combined, roll into small balls (about 3cm balls).

    Season the extra bread crumbs with salt and pepper (or any other herbs and spices you like)

    Whisk egg and dip balls into egg mixture, then into breadcrumbs. Ensure entire ball is crumbed. You can 'double crumb' if you like by repeating process with each ball.

    Place into a shallow pan with HOT oil. You want to hear the sizzle popping sound when this little baby hits the oil.

    Shallow fry for about 15 seconds on each side or until golden brown and crunchy.

    Serve with garlic aoili, tomato chutney or sweet chilli mayo.


Change the fillings if you like - could do a Thai Red Curry Prawn Arancini, or put a ball of mozzarella inside, chicken pesto arancini etc

    Add raw chicken at same time as mushrooms.
    There is a chicken and pea variation in the BCB that steps you through. I used it to make a chicken and mushroom risotto.
