      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

    Add chillie seeds and all & the peeled 1/2 head of garlic to bowl & Chop for 3 seconds- speed 9
  1. Add sugar & VINEGAR to bowl & cook 10 mins 100 degrees speed 2 putting steamer on top to stop splashing i use it this way which may not be ideal as i think it lets more steam out
  2. Then cook for 35 mins varoma speed 1
  3. The sauce needs to be clear and thick so it will need another

    25 mins 100 degrees speed 1 - keeping steaming basket on top to stop splashing
    Check the clarity & the consistancy sometimes it does need a few extra minutes
  4. When this delicious sauce is ready it will be clear with lots of seeds in it. use a funel and pour into warm sterilized bottles. I think a glass juice bottle with a wide mouth would be ideal. The bottles shown in the picture are from the Reject Shop but I found the sauce hard to get out
    I pretty much put it on everything - food, cheese sandwiches its so delicious

    you know it is ready when it appears clear - not milky

    if you add more vinegar it will be runnier - i like a thick saude - more like a jam but either way it is the best thai sweet chilly ever!

    Dont use really hot chillis - it gets so hot

Yes this has a lot of sugar but to get it just right you need this amount

I'd say 1/2 a head would be a minimum

    You have said to add sugar and water to bowl but there is no water in the ingredients list- did you mean the vinegar?
