About Arwen Genge


I'm Arwen, I'm passionate about food. I love cooking and experimenting with flavours and different cuisines from all around the world. I also have dreams of one day having my own cooking show. It was this dream and my love of food that lead me to an exciting Thermomix career in 2011. I love using my Thermomix, often using it multiple times a day to quickly whip up delicious meals and treats at home for family and friends. I source fresh, local produce and ingredients whenever I can, including harvesting produce from my own kitchen garden. I love cooking every single element of a dish from scratch so I am guaranteed to get maximum flavour into my food. I get a real buzz out of inspiring others to get the most out of their Thermomix by trying new recipes. I have been lucky enough to do some recipe testing & I enjoy food styling & photography. You can also find me on instragram and the Thermomix recipe community.

Taste of Tasmania Session 2

Tuesday 29th Dec 1.30pm at the Taste Theatre – Taste of Tasmania.

We are making rotis to serve with fresh paneer as part of a vegetarian curry & served with apricot chutney.



Cuisine: Indian
  • 320 g flour
  • 20 g oil (grape seed)
  • ¼ tsp salt (to taste)
  • 250 g boiling Water
  1. Place all ingredients into TM bowl in the order listed.
  2. Knead for 2 minutes on interval setting, dough will look a little like playdough.
  3. Place mixture onto lightly floured surface and hand knead and break into 12-14 small balls of dough.
  4. Using lots of flour roll each roti very thinly into circles and then dry fry in a crepe pan. Once one side is brown turn over and fry the other side.
  5. Pile up cooked rotis on a plate until ready to serve.
  6. This recipe can be doubled for crowds and rotis freeze really well and make a great substitute for wraps.

Jam – That’s good!

Who loves a bit of Jam? I do but I find the traditional recipe just a bit too sweet so I like to add less sugar. I like the latest idea of adding chia seeds to thicken it so you can use less sugar. It is just so easy to make Jam & chutneys in the Thermomix, it does the cooking & stirring for you. It is not recommended to do a double batch because it could boil over. Always take out the MC from the Thermomix lid & place the simmering basket on top to let out some moisture & catch any splatters.

Here we have the traditional raspberry jam made in the Thermomix with some rhubarb from the garden & a splash of rosewater – the recipe is coming soon!! Perfect to go with my scone recipe.
