Name of Recipe:
Red curry chicken risottoNumber of People:
1 onion quartered
2 garlic cloves
small handful flat leaf parsley (or coriander if you like the stuff
3 Tbsp. red curry paste (I use the aldi brand which is mild, so you may need less if your paste is hotter)
40g olive oil
130g chopped carrot
1 large red capsicum quartered
2 chopped spring onions
600g chicken breast cubed - or could use thigh strips
400g can light organic coconut milk (can use normal coconut milk)
1 Tbsp. TM vegetable stock concentrate
300g aborio ricePreparation:
Place onion, garlic & parsley into TM jug. Chop for 5 seconds, speed7.
Scrape down jug and add oil, and red curry paste, and chopped spring onions. Saute for 3 minutes, 100c, speed 1.
Add in capsicum and carrot, and chop for 3 seconds, speed 7.
Scrape down jug and add in the cubed chicken (or thigh strips), and 100g of the coconut milk (reserve rest in the can). Cook for 2 minutes, 100c,
Add in remaining coconut milk, aborio rice, 300g water, TM stock and salt & pepper to taste, then cook for 17 minutes, 100c,
speed 1. Cook with the MC cap out, and place the steaming insert basket on top of lid.
I usually mix on
speed 3 to combine for a couple of seconds, then turn back down to
speed 1 for the cooking period.
Allow the risotto to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
If you were wanting more heat to the dish, simply add in some finely chopped chilli and saute it in with the curry paste & oil.Photos:members' comments
Kimby83 - This was the first meal I have cooked in my thermomix and I wasn't disappointed!!! Thanks so much for the recipe - it was DELICIOUS! This is a regular on our menu, at least once a month. I normally add whatever veggies I can find in the fridge (zucchini is normally a regular), green capsicum etc - and leave out the spring onions cos otherwise my fiance won't eat it. I also use my own red curry paste (from EDC) which is always delicious and I can make it as spicy as I like. Definitely a winner!!!
Frozzie - I made this and as nice as it was I used my homemade red curry paste from the EDC and put three tablespoons in lol...urrmm word of warning....burns your mouth out lol....don't miss the fact that the curry paste maddy used was mild. Nice complete meal though so thanks maddy..will have to try it again with less paste.
faffa - We love this though I generally only use about 1 tablespoon of the paste from the EDC, could probably handle 1.5 tablespoons but not the kids.
Katiej - it was lovely. This recipe was very quick and easy to make and I had our dinner on the table in no time. I didn't have enough chicken so added a zucchini chopped into small pieces to make up the weight. I did use green curry paste as this is what I had in the fridge. It was quite hot but we both enjoyed it. Plenty leftover for lunch tomorrow too.
miap - Absolute Favourite..........I add real chili and extra garlic....I use red curry paste but there is also a paste called Jungle Curry Paste that I use as well...(its hotter).
DizzyGirl - DH and I loved it. We don't have it often as DS doesn't like risotto.
sue purrb - it was delicious. I had about 3 heaped teaspoons of Valcom red curry paste, so used that with one of my home grown red chillies. It had a nice kick. I sliced the red capsicum and added it about 5 mins before the end of cooking time, along with chopped snow peas, mushrooms and zucchini. All the veggies stayed crunchy, even after being in the thermoserver. It made enough for 3 dinners the first night, 2 lunches the next day and then another 2 dinners that night. I was sorry I didn't have enough for lunch the next day too! Thanks for a great recipe, Maddy - a new favourite!
Kimmyh - Didn't have any red curry paste, nor the ingredients to make it. Did find some tandoori paste I wanted to use up. So in it went and the result was delicious. Great easy to follow recipe. Can't wait to try it with the correct paste next time.
MangoJam - This is my first risotto in my new TMX, it is beautiful . Spicy and not gluggy at all . We all loved it .
Jamberie - It's yummy. Made exactly as per directions with the addition of a few peas towards the end. Thank you for sharing Maddy.
Yvette - I love this recipe, we have it every few weeks.
MF -Had this with green curry paste and added diced capsicum and snow peas 3 minutes before cooking was finished.
It was nice but not a dish that wowed me. I would much rather have a Thai chicken curry with rice. DH enjoyed it but agreed that he wouldn't choose to have it again. Can't really fault it as such but just not for me. I guess I am a purist when it comes to Italian food and Asian food. Tips/Hints:
