Steamed Salmon Skewers with Coconut Basil and Lemon Sauce
( a ThermoQueen recipe ) This is delicious 😋
Main Course Ingredients:
500g of Salmon Fillet without skin.
1 Lemon
8 Cherry Tomatoes
1 tsp salt
200g Basmati Rice

Sauce Ingredients:
200g Coconut Milk
Juice 1/2 lemon ( I ran out of lemons so used the juice of a small lime)
2 sprigs Basil
1 tsp Cornflour
Salt and pepper to taste

8 Wooden Skewers

Method:
Put 1100g of water plus 1 tsp salt into the mixing bow.
Cook 7 mins/100c/ speed 1
Meanwhile cut the salmon into big cubes of approx 3cm x 3cm and the lemon into 8 wedges.

Alternate salmon, lemon and cherry tomato on the skewers and place in the Varoma. ( I also threaded 8 thin slices of courgette and 8 pieces of orange pepper (capsicum) as I wanted more veg) 
Use both levels if necessary

Add rinsed rice to the internal steaming basket and place it in the TM bowl. Place Varoma on top. Cook 10mins/Varoma/ speed 2

When rice and salmon is cooked, remove and keep warm by covering with foil.If you feel the your fish and rice needs more cooking, cook for a future 2 mins.

Discard contents of the TM bowl. Add all the sauce ingredients. Blend 10sec/ speed 10 then cook 7mins/ 90c / speed 1.

To serve put rice onto a serving plate, then skewers and pour over sauce.

These are delicious. I used Turkey Thigh Mince. I only made six patties although the recipe suggests to make eight. Served them on Stef's Hamburger Buns.

Prawn Bhuna
This is a very mild curry and simple to make. It has flavour but no spicy heat to it. DH loved it, I thought it was okay. The Prawns cooked beautifully in the specified time. I served it with steamed rice.

Timatar Wali Macchi (Cod in Tomato Sauce)

This is another delicious recipe from this book. It's a lovely spicy fish curry which we both enjoyed very much.
I did use thick pieces of Cod Fillet so cooked it in the oven for the full 18 minutes.If using thinner fillets reduce the cooking time. I didn't flash fry the cod fillets as dictated by the recipe.I couldn't see the point of this as the fish is covered by the tomato sauce and cooked in the oven.While the fish was cooking I steamed rice and green beans.

Chicken Akhni
This recipe is also in the Fast and Easy Indian Cookbook (page 106)but has been updated for the new A Taste of India cookbook.
My finished dish didn't look anything like the photo in the cookbook.LOL. My rice was over cooked. I think the one hour cooking in the oven is too long but it might have been due to the quality of my Basmati rice, although I always buy premium quality rice.Next time I think I will try Brown Basmati rice.
We loved it.Another recipe to make again.

Chicken Saag.
Another winning curry.We loved this too. I did use frozen spinach (300g) well drained.
As with all curries it tasted even better next day. Freezes well too.

The Kofta ( meatball) recipe can be found in the Fast and Easy Indian cook book (page 65). In the new cookbook a delicious curry sauce has been added to the recipe.I used lamb mince.
We loved this curry , the flavour is delicious.I did cook the meatballs in a frying pan on the hob rather than steaming them in the Varoma. I would definitely make this curry again.

GS and I made these together when he stayed with us recently. Very quick,easy and delicious.We ate ours with Maple Syrup. The recipes says you get 12 pancakes but our batch made 15. Well worth making.

News about Thermomix / Price increase of the TM5 in the UK
« on: January 09, 2017, 08:52:18 pm »
I've read on various FB pages that U.K. Thermomix will be increasing the price of the TM5 from the 1st of February 2017 due to the exchange rate and increase in price in other countries.

Another lovely delicious recipe.
I did find that I had to mix the pastry longer than stated on the chip to bring the mixture together.Just when I had popped it into the fridge to rest our DS turned up and the pastry was left for quite a long time.(The recipe recommends 30 minutes) I found it quite stiff and hard to roll out but once I got it going it rolled out beautifully.
I didn't have any raspberry jam so used my homemade Blackcurrant Jelly instead.Also I used more than a tablespoonful of flaked almonds to sprinkle over the filling.
It did take the full 35 minutes to cook in my oven.
With the leftover sweet pastry I made a few plain biscuits.These are delicious too.
