Accessories you need



Recipe suits 4 side serves, or 2-3 larger portions.

Adaptation for TM31 - use speed 2 for cooking rice and check if cooked after alloted time.  Extend time if needed.

For added spice - you can add a smidge of cayenne pepper...but be careful.  tmrc_emoticons.)

    This salad was amazing, so refreshing on a hot night! I had to substitute a few ingredients as it was a last minute decision to make this, so I used white rice, red onion, cashews & left out the lemongrass. Even the kids devoured this & asked for seconds!

    After I've made this for the 5th time in as many weeks, I thought I should comment and express how much I love this! I always add something different, depending on what I have but keep the base the same, I have added red onion, kale, capsican and tomatoes!!

    Thanks for a great recipe tmrc_emoticons.)
