    Trying the recipe now. I think you forgot to put in the amount of water required to cook the carrots and potatoes. Is the chicken fried or cooked with water?

    I am not sure what it is suppose to taste like but my hubs said it was good. I looked at version 1 and it said that it needed 500g of water so worked it out from that amount. Will definitely make it again, just got the thermomix not too long ago so am playing around with it. I added a bit of coconut paste and honey to it too. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
