Desi Quinoa

Here I have given a desi twist , using up the odd asparagus , half cut lovely and lonely red bell pepper and some tomatoes and a hint of white onion.
Soaking quinoa helps cooking it better and while soaking I added salt to taste , a dot of hing and 2 slit green chiles. I allowed quinoa to soak for an hour, drinking in the flavors and expanding.
I then strained the quinoa , retained the liquid.
1 Cup Quinoa.
1 Teaspoon Rai.
Whole Chilies.
8-10 Tablespoons assorted chopped vegetables.
Lots of Chopped Coriander / Parsley
Heat up oil , splutter rai add shole chilies and the vegetables.Saute one minute , add strained quinoa , saute another 2-3 minutes , now stir in the strained liquid , and cook quinoa covered over low heat for 4-5 minutes till done.You may naturally need to keep feeding some water , as it cooks.
When cooked take off the heat , allow quinoa to stand covered 10-15 minutes and then gently fluff up with a fork and sit down to some delicious moments ! Healthy bhi happy bhi !
