Chicken Curry & Cauliflower Rice


Thermomix Chicken Curry with Cauliflower Rice

This Thermomix Chicken Curry with Cauliflower Rice is really quick & easy to make and is mild enough for kids to enjoy too.  My girls were very critical about it’s looks but once we got over that they actually ate it and liked it.  They are getting quite vocal on what they think of my food these days and if it doesn’t look the goods I’m hearing it, tough critics!

Anyway, looks aside I’m serving up this Chicken Curry & Cauliflower Rice because it does taste yummy and it’s a good one to have in your mid week meal repertoire.  When I first made this it was without broccoli in it but in subsequent versions I’ve added all sorts of veggies depending what’s been lurking in the crisper at the time (the photo’s of the earlier version are a bit ordinary so I’m using the broccoli ones now even though it’s not in the recipe, okay? just add the extra veggies at the same time as the zucchini or instead of if zucchini is not your friend).

It’s also gluten free & dairy free if that is important for you too.

Thermomix Chicken Curry With Cauliflower Rice

I have made this a Thermomix recipe but it can be done on the cook top using the same times just chop everything first up.

You could also use any type of rice you like I just wanted to up the veggie in take so went for the cauliflower instead.

    I can see 1/2 cup water in ingredients but not in method. Where does it get added?

      Hi there – thanks for picking that up – it actually doesn’t need the water as it’s quite liquidy so I will amend the recipe.
