Thai Fish Cakes in the Thermomix

Published , Last Updated

Thai Fish Cakes or Tod Mun Pla are so quick & easy in the Thermomix. The recipe tastes just like your local takeaway only the serving size is so much more generous. 

I recently published a poll of the ThermoKitchen group page to determine which cuisine was the favourite amongst readers. This information has made it easier for me to know which recipes readers would like converted for the Thermomix. Thai food was the clear winner of the poll! So the first recipe I’m sharing is Tod Mun Pla or Thai Fish Cakes.

I’ve shared this recipe before on various websites because it’s a favourite of mine. I used to make the fish cakes in a food processor but it’s so much easier in the Thermomix. Ever since I bought my Thermomix these have been a regular on our family menu. The powerful chopping action of the Thermomix makes this a simple, quick dish to prepare.

The crazy thing about this recipe is that it tastes exactly like our local Thai restaurants’ Tod mun pla. I’m sure that making these from scratch is actually quicker than ordering, and waiting for them to be delivered.

Have I sold you on the idea of making your own fish cakes yet?? Well, I have one more selling point. This recipe makes 30! That’s so much more than your local Thai restaurant will give you per serve! If you don’t want 30 fish cakes in one serving you have a few options. Once the raw ingredients have been processed the mixture can stay covered in the fridge for a few days.

Alternatively, you can always shape the mixture and freeze the remainder for another day. When you’re craving a Thai fix you just need to drop the frozen fish cakes straight into the hot oil. It is always best to fry the fish cakes right before serving.



So don’t forget to pin these delicious Thai Fish Cakes for later. Feel free to let me know what other recipes you would like to see converted for the Thermomix.

How to Serve Thai Fish Cakes

Traditionally fish cakes are served as an entree with a dipping sauce. Alternatively, you can make the fish cakes a little smaller and serve them over a Thai Salad. This will make a complete meal and the salad is very quick to make.

Here is the recipe for my Thai Salad.
