It is one of the healthy and nutritious breakfast recipe. Enjoy it with sambar and chutney. Quinoa belongs to the family of pseudo cereals. It is rich in proteins, fiber and minerals. It is gluten free and can be substituted for rice.
Similar to other millets, I like to use it for idli, dosa, pongal or some kind of variety rice rather than cooking them separately. Method of preparation is similar to normal Ven Pongal made with rice. This is my contribution to A to Z Recipe Challenge facebook group where we need to post recipes using ingredients starting in alphabetical order.
