Ingredients

How to Make Quinoa pulao

  • Wash the quinoa well under running cold water. Soak it for about 1/2 hr and then drain it and keep it aside.
  • In a kadai or non-stick pan, heat some oil or ghee and add the masala items (saunf, cinnamon, bay leaf, star anise and Cardamom).
  • Fry them for a couple of minutes and then add the raisins.
  • Fry it for a minute until the raisins fluff up and then add the onions and green chillies.
  • Saute until onions are translucent and then add the vegetables.
  • Saute them for a few minutes (about 5 mins) and then add the drained quinoa.
  • Fry the quinoa until all the moisture evaporates (about 7-8 mins).
  • Add the salt and garam masala powder. Add about 2 cups of water and let it come to a boil over medium high heat.
  • Then simmer and cook covered until the quinoa is cooked and all the water is evaporated (about 20 mins).
  • This can be also cooked in a cooker.
  • If there is some moisture left after the quinoa is cooked, you could open the lid and let it evaporate, stirring frequently.
