      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.

Recipe's preparation


    Place lentils in basket and 900g water in TM bowl and cook 30 min/100 Degrees C/ Speed 3.


    At the same time place cubed sweet potato in Varoma and steam while lentils are cooking. The sweet potato will take about 20 minutes to steam.


    Remove and set aside lentils and sweet potato.


    Place onion and garlic into TM boowl and chop 3 sec/ speed 5. Scrape down sides af bowl add oil and Curry Paste and saute 5 mintes



    Add tinned tomatoes, water  and stock  and cook 10 minutes /100 Degrees/ Speed 1


    Meanwhile saute sliced chorizo on stove until turning golden and set aside 



    Return cooked lentil sweet potato and chorizo to the TM basket and cook another 5 minutes/ 100 Degrees /Speed1

    Thanks - I missed out the word water - so I can understand how you thought the water was for steaming not for the sauce

    I return the sweet potato and lentils and chorizo to the basket as I don't want them to break up.


    Thanks for your comments

    Not too sure about this... Followed recipie, numbers don't seem to add up from ingredients list to method. Can't say I got 5 serves out of it, next to no sauce with only the can of tomatos. Think it may need some adapting
