Recipe is created for
Soak the lentils in a small bowl with the boiling water. Set aside.
Place the rice inside the simmer basket. Fill the bowl with 900g of cold water. Insert the simmer basket into the bowl, close the lid and insert the MC. "Rinse" the rice by spinning the blades for 3 seconds / speed 10 (This helps ensure that the rice separates and cooks evenly.Now cook the rice for 16 mins / varoma temp / speed 4. Remove the basket from the TM bowl and place it inside your 2.6L ThermoServer with the lid on. It will continue to cook while you prepare the rest of the soup. Rinse and dry the TM bowl.
Add celery, carrots, capsicum and leek to the TM bowl and roughly chop for 5 seconds / speed 4. Set aside (save dishes and just pop them inside the Varoma that you're going to use later anyway!)
Add garlic and ginger to the TM bowl and chop for 3 seconds / speed 7.
Add onion, curry powder, garam masala, chilli powder, cinnamon and olive oil and chop for 3 seconds / speed 5. Scrape down the walls of the bowl. Saute for 4 minutes / 115° (varoma temp in the TM31) / speed 1 (MC off).
Add flour and cook for 1 minute / 100° / speed 1. Use the spatula to scrape the bottom of the bowl.
Add tomatoes, tomato paste, drained lentils, chicken stock and coconut milk. Cook for 10 minutes / 100° / speed 1.
Add the chopped vegetables ensuring you don't go over the 2 litre mark (it will end up too big to fit inside the ThermoServer!). Rinse the Varoma and place the chicken pieces inside it and position it correctly on the Thermomix.
Cook for 20-25 minutes / Varoma temp / speed 1 until the chicken is properly cooked.
Remove the Varoma with the chicken in it and set it aside.
Insert the MC and puree the soup for 1 minute starting at speed 4 and then slowly increasing the speed until speed 9. While this is pureeing, turn the rice out of the simmer basket into the ThermoServer and loosen the rice with a fork.
Once the soup is pureed, pour it over the rice in the ThermoServer. Return the bowl to the TM base (no need to rinse it) and add the cooked chicken pieces. Now shred the chicken for 5-8 seconds / reverse / speed 4. Try not to overshred as it can become paste. Add the shredded chicken to the ThermoServer and stir to combine. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with crusty bread.
