To help you recreate these amazing Asian recipes at home in your Thermomix, with as much ease and authenticity as possible, we had a lot of help. Our Thermomix partners in Asia, as well as our consultants and customers, all graciously shared their heritage and cooking expertise to turn Asian fakeaway into the real deal. Here’s a few of our must-try favourites.
Soto ayam – Malaysian recipe
This authentic regional dish of Malaysia is a flavoursome spiced twist on the old chicken and veg soup. Make it quick and easy using noodles, or make the rice cakes from scratch using the nasi impit recipe.
Ayam golek – Malaysian recipe
It’s spicy, but the flavours are amazing! This comforting roast chicken dish will feed a family of six. Or there's plenty for guests. You can prep it ahead of time and keep it in the fridge for an hour or so, until you’re ready to cook. Leftovers are especially delicious served cold with a salad.
Tom yum goong – Thai recipe
A popular hot (spicy) and sour soup that’s packed with healthy nourishing fresh ingredients including chilies, galangal, lemongrass and garlic. Using your Thermomix to chop, mix and cook you can easily make this beautiful broth from scratch in just 45 mins.
Thai red pork curry
Simple to make. Sensational to taste. This wonderfully fragrant dish is on the table in 35 minutes and really delivers on those authentic Thai flavours we all know and love. With its subtle heat, it’s a great family-friendly mid-week meal.
Bot chein – Vietnamese recipe
A quick and tasty lunchtime trip to Vietnam. Since developing this recipe we’ve also discovered you can buy the rice cakes pre-made in the freezer section of Asian grocers, so you only need to whip up your pickles and dipping sauce.
Banh mi – Vietnamese recipe
Meaning bread in Vietnamese, this baguette-style sandwich is regularly found on specialist food truck and deli menus. It takes the traditional lunchtime staple to a whole new level with multiple layers of flavours, textures and versatile fillings – all of which can be pre-made and stored until you’re ready to get your fill.
Yang zhou chao fan - Chinese Fried Rice
If you’re a lover of this takeaway classic, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the authenticity of this rice dish. Your fakeaway will be prepped in 15 mins, ready in 35 mins and taste just like you ordered it from your favourite local Chinese restaurant.
Lu ji chi and San bei ji – Chinese recipes
These braised chicken wings and the three cup chicken dish have both been really popular in the Thermomix office. A great combo of fakeaway share plates for chicken lovers.
