Yes, yes, once again I’m adapting from Adam Liaw’s Two Asian Kitchens to the thermomix. Any guesses what my favourite cook book du jour is? Little wonder, Liaw has harnessed most of my favourite flavours in one book and the majority of the recipes are quite time efficient, even more so once I convert them to the thermomix.

Steamed flathead and vegetables is on the menu at Chez KP this week, I thought this curd could give it a glorious kick.

Mandarin and Chilli Curd.
Makes about 2 cups.
