Here is another quinoa recipe.
I am a big time fan to daddojanam or curd rice as it is called. So there was no way I could stop myself from trying this recipe with quinoa. Since I am liking the taste and texture of quinoa with our Indian style, I went ahead and made this.
I loved it truly. It was a nice ending to my meal. Healthy and guilt-free, full of protien and energy! What do you say?
