I have made this recipe often so I thought I would share it with you all.

I sometimes use Pork Mince and use different chopping times for the vegetables. I find the mixture fairly wet so donít add the egg as the balls will hold their shape.

Questions? Technical Issues? The Survival Guide / Cooking Quinoa

I have found two packets Quinoa. Iíve never it cooked it before. Any idea of how to cook it in the Thermomix? Does anyone cook it regularly and can give me a few tips? I donít want to waste a grain.

I found Quirky Cooking has a recipe for cooking Quinoa. But any recipe ideas would be great. 😁

I made this a couple of times but halved the recipe for DH and I. Itís quick and delicious. I used (bought) Jalfezzi paste because that whatís I had in the fridge. I think any curry paste will work.

I found this recipe on the online paper today. I haven't made it but I thought it worth a post in case anyone wants to try it. If it's a disaster I will delete the post😁

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

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.

Chicken Akhni page 60
Chicken Saag page 62
Kofta Curry page 74
Prawn Bhuna page 98
Timatar Wali Macchi ( Cod in Tomato Sauce) page 92

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.
