quinoa dish 5: poha

Lost track of cataloging all what worked for me with respect to quinoa, so here I am back to writing them again. This is the search for the category: quinoa

So once I made this poha style. A good friend mentioned she does it this way, so I figured why not.


  • Cook quinoa, with just the right amount of water and let it fluff. Separately, on the stove.
  • In a pan, add oil, mustard seeds, green chillies, ginger and fry some onions.
  • Add chopped boiled potatoes, or some sliced carrots to up the vegetable ante.
  • After some softening, add the quinoa, salt and mix well.
  • Roast some peanuts and chop them up in the blender or otherwise, just don’t make it too thin a powder. You must still see them as nuts and broken.
  • Add peanut powder to quinoa and mix well.
  • Have coriander leaves and lemon, squeeze a dash and it’s a heck of a healthy and tasty option.

Tastes pretty awesome. Green chillies gives the heat, so add according to taste.

Tada! :)
