    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!

    thanks for the recipe. I was sick for a few days and craving my mum/dad/grandma's comfort food.

    I had to modify some settings to get the congee to the consistency I'm familiar with.

    - 1000g of water (instead of 1200g)

    - cook for 35mins (instead of 25mins)

    I've now introduced my childhood food to my wife, and two kids

    thanks again!! tmrc_emoticons.D
