Recipe's preparation

    Preparing the Slow Cooker
  1. Add stock and boiling water to the slow cooker. (I use home made stock paste prepared in my Thermomix.) Stir until the stock is distributed through the water.
  2. Add potatoes, 1 kg at a time into the Thermomix and blitz for 10 seconds/speed 5. Tipping each batch of potatoes directly into the slow cooker.
  3. Onions Mix
  4. Add leek and either the shallot or, onion and chives, to Thermomix in batches that never more than half fill the pot. Blitz them for 3 seconds/speed 5. Tip each batch of onion blend into a bowl.
  5. Add butterfly whisk to empty Thermomix bowl and return in all onion blend plus olive oil. Cook for 20 minutes/100°C/speed 1. Then add to the slow cooker.
  6. Spice Mix
  7. Add remaining ingredients, with half the chilli put aside, into a small bowl and lightly mix with the handle of a teaspoon. Test the aroma to ensure it is balanced and adjust quantities accordingly.
  8. Add the spice mix to a clean dry Thermomix bowl with butterfly whisk in place. Cook off for 12 minute/120°C/speed 1. Then add to the slow cooker.
  9. Cooking and Serving
  10. Stir all ingredients in the slow cooker through and allow to cook for approximately seven hours. When cooked either blend with a stab mixer or in the Thermomix to make a rich, smooth texture.
  11. Serve in a bowl, garnishing with remaining chives and chilli or a fresh garnish alternative. Consider serving with a side of bread.
