How To Cook Quinoa

Quinoa is one of the grains that is gaining popularity around here. Though it is quite expensive, the gourmet stores sure do stock them.

I was lucky to get a pack from Usha when she visited here a while ago and since then I have been looking forward to trying new dishes with it.

The first one - Quinoa bisi bele bhath was a hit and all at home enjoyed it. So I have been cooking a few dishes with it which I will be posting in the coming day.

Before we get on to the recipes, here is how to cook quinoa....

Take a cup of quinoa and rinse it n cold water. Strain using a fine meshed strainer. And tip it into a large vessel.

Now add 2 cups of water and pressure cook for 15 minutes / till it is cooked. Once the pressure releases, remove the vessel from the cooker and fluff it up gently with a fork.

Cooked Quinoa is ready!!!

Bon Appetit...
