Recipe's preparation

  1. Place the onion, garlic, ginger, chilli and thyme in the bowl and chop Sp5 for 4/5 seconds.   Add olive oil in bowl and sauté for 2 minutes, 120 degrees on sp1.5.


    Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for 30 minutes, 120 degrees on Sp 1.5.  Check after 30 minutes - if a thicker consistency is required then cook a further 15-20 minutes or until the mixture is a jam-like consistency. Allow to cool before spooning into clean sterilised glass jars or serving bowls.



    Inspired by Andy Allen's recipe - Masterchef Winner.


I usually double the quantity.

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!
