    TM 5
    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!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Insert butterfly into TM bowl.

     

    Place rice (no need to rinse), water, piece of ginger and stock into TM bowl and cook for 20 minutes, 100 degrees, soft spoon speed, REVERSE, MC ON.

     

    Check the water level.  If you like a soupy consistency, then leave the water in there.  If you like a thicker consistency then pour some of the water out, but not all of it.

     

    Add cooked chicken, fish sauce, coriander and sesame oil to the rice.  Crack the egg directly into the rice.  Cook a further 5 minutes, 100 degrees, soft spoon speed, REVERSE, MC OFF.

     

    Just before serving, remove the piece of ginger (or just be careful not to serve) and add garnishes of your choice.  I have used fresh or crushed chilli, fried garlic, extra coriander, spring onions and a dash of soy sauce.

Tip

VARIATIONS

There are many variations to rice porridge and it can be suited to your preferred taste. 

The egg can be omitted.

Alternatives to chicken for Khao Tom include prawns, fish, duck or roast pork.

You can leave out the chicken or use any meat you like. 

If you are using raw chicken, place the diced chicken in the TM bowl at the start (allowing to cook for 20 minutes).

 

For a vegetarian option – use vegetable stock and add mushrooms, chopped onions, or any veggies you like.

 

Please note this is a small serve for 2-3 portions.

 

If you try this recipe, I would love it if you could leave a comment and rating – I appreciate all feedback.

    Submitted by Gorgeouscyd on 31. May 2017 - 09:06.

    This is sooooo yummy, and super easy. I used left over chicken, and the consequent stock from steaming a whole chicken in the varoma the night before. Lovely flavours. I did add a little veggie stock concentrate, and poured the congee onto fresh spinach, letting it sit a couple of minutes to wilt the spinach, before eating.
    Thanks for sharingSmile

  • No more burning and having to stand by the stove...

    Submitted by aldopham on 18. May 2017 - 09:10.

    No more burning and having to stand by the stove when cooking congee! Made this for my sick hubby last night and he practically inhaled the entire recipe in one sitting! Delish and so quick. I made a few variations:

    - included 1 clove of garlic to help boost the immune system (chopped this at the beginning before inserting the butterfly)
    - left out the egg; and
    - didn't remove any of the water as the congee thickens up if left standing for 5-10mins at the end. It was the perfect consistency!

    Thank for a flavoursome recipe.

    Submitted by eskimo20052006 on 1. May 2017 - 13:13.

    I've made this several times since discovering it. I have doubled it (big family), and it makes the butterfly float off. I haven't figured out a fix for this yet but it didn't really affect the end result. I skipped the fresh coriander and put in dried coriander. I didn't need to extend the cooking time either. It is absolutely delicious!!! I add kim chi, fried shallots and a splash of soy sauce. My kids LOVE it. Sometimes i use frozen chicken broth in the mix to add a gut health kick. I add a couple extra of these chicken broth ice cubes to my kids serve so it adds extra broth and cools it down enough for them to devour it immediately. Works a treat! Keep up the good work tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by becdale83 on 15. April 2016 - 12:55.

    Just made this now and eating as I type. So yum! I didn't have any coriander and the only garnish I have is soy sauce and fried shallots. Still delicious so I imagine it will be amazing with coriander, chilli and spring onions. Can't wait to try again when I'm better prepared.  Thanks for the recipe.

    Yummy, I didn't add the full 40g of coriander (that would have taken my whole plant), 5g was enough for me.

    Thanks for sharing! I added the shredded chicken, some crushed chilli and garlic halfway through cooking the rice to add depth of flavour. This was delicious!

    Submitted by Aussie TM5 Thermomixer on 29. June 2015 - 11:48.

    Hi Petiegirl,

    The piece of ginger is just put in whole and then remove it once cooked.

    The prawns sound lovely, I'm glad you liked it tmrc_emoticons.)

    I would've put raw prawns in for the last 5 minutes or so, to prevent them overcooking tmrc_emoticons.)

    Yum! super easy and very tasty. Loved by all. I made it with Prawns and put them in at the same time as you would the chicken. With the ginger, did you chop, put it in whole or shred? Thanks for sharing.
