    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!

  1. Place butterfly whisk into mixing bowl with rice, water, soy sauce and sesame oil - 5 mins / 100 deg / Counter-clockwise operationGentle stir setting

  2. Continue to simmer - 25mins / 80 deg / Counter-clockwise operationGentle stir setting

  3. Drain any remaining liquid from the rice and transfer rice to thermoserver

Accessories you need



If you dont have a thermoserver, leave the rice in the mixing bowl with the lid on.

I often leave the fumi furikake / nori out as it can sometimes be difficult to find. It still tastes great without it! I have also substituted for 25-50g spring onions
