- curry, durian, flower, food, indonesia, malaysia, recipe, thailand
- Durian flowers or blossoms is a rare treat because the trees
blooms only for a few days, normally only once a year. Preparation
is also labor-intensive. Hence restaurants do not serve them.
Durian flowers can be stir fried with meat, belacan (fermented
shrimp cake), or cookied in curry.

to Thai-style stir-fried vegetables (Pad phak ruam mitr)?
Amidst hundreds of recipes online, note these ingredients - in this
order of importance - fish or oyster sauce, brown or palm sugar,
and chopped garlic. Fresh vege and hot wok are important, soy sauce
may substitute for fish sauce, and white sugar for palm sugar. Use
an oil of high smoking point. Spring onion, young coriander leaves
and shallots are helpful too.

- cooking, food, recipe, thermomix
- Most reviewers agree Thermonix functions well as an all-in-one
kitchen appliance that combines blender, processor, kneader,
chopper, mixer, steamer, crock-Pot, timer and kitchen scale. They
generally agree it saves space, is cheaper compared with buying
multiple devices, and that its finely-tuned design beats
competitors'. Their main criticisms are it's high price, difficult
availabilty in the US, limit to family-size capacity, and perhaps
its lack of bake and roast capabilities.

- To find out basic details about Thermomix kitchen appliance from German manufacturer Vorwerk,
- To see if reviewers find it worthwhile to buy Thermomix,
- To bookmark recipes and resources on Thermomix (see Chops sectioni).
Thermomix generally receives positive reviews. Most criticisms surround these issues:
- High price,
- Non-existent sales effort in the US - apparently due to legal constraints,
- Small capacity relative to large families or industry/restaurant use,
- Tending toward convenience for warm soupy recipes,
- Can't bake and roast.
- air_fryer, cooking, food, low-fat_fryer, non-oil_fryer, recipe, thermomix
- These heat-and-air fryers may just satisfy our craving for fried
chicken wings and other fried food. Some times called non-oil
fryers, these are actually low-fat, air-fryers. They would
complement Thermomix, which can do everything else except frying.
The reviews are generally favorable. A light dose of oil or spray
is still needed to seal in the moisture - unless the food itself is
already fatty. I don't sell these machines - just researching for
myself - and might as well record the results

Remember to add the softer ingredients and prawns last. The main
challenge is often getting the unusual ingredients, such as,
galangal, fish sauce, and kaffir lime leaves. Hence I have linked
to online sources (I make money out of the Google ads, not from
these links). Pre-packaged pastes often work out well.
