Recipe's preparation

  1. Place garlic and ginger into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds, speed 7 and set aside. Do not wash bowl.

    Add onion and leek into TM bowl and chope for 5 seconds, speed 7. Scrape down side of bowl.

    Add oil and saute for 3 minutes, 100C, speed 1.

    Add in TM Bowl chopped garlic, ginger and madras curry paste and cook 2min, 100C, speed 1.

    Add carrots, celery & potato and chop for 5 seconds, speed 7. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add water, stock paste, peas & pepper to the bowl.

    Place ham hock in TM basket. You may need to cut pieces off around the bone so you can position in a way that the whole hock fits in the basket! 

    Lower basket into TM bowl slowly, being careful that the water doesn't overflow! When you close the lid, make sure there is enough room near the hole for steam to escape during cooking!!

    Cook for 60 minutes, 100degC, speed 1, with the MC out of lid.

    Remove meat from basket, before draining soup back into bowl & removing basket completely.

    Cook soup for another 15 mins at 100degC on speed 1.

    While soup is cooking, remove meat from hock and chop into small pieces. 

    Once soup cooked, slowly turn dial up to speed 9 and blend for about 40 seconds.

    Add chopped meat back to soup and mix on reverse, speed 5 for about 20 seconds.

    Serve with home made bread rolls!

It is a little fiddly to fit the hock into the simmering basket. However, it's well worth the effort!
