Quinoa (Pronounce: KEEN-wah) cooked in fried rice style. How to cook quinoa in Indian pressure cooker and an easy recipe to start with. I have been seeing this for few years, but never thought to buy and cook. Two months back, Sangeeta asked me to try some quinoa recipes and I too thought I should try. So bought a pack of organic Quinoa and kept for trying something out of it. Now almost its been a month since I bought it. Finally I cooked it today! And I really liked it. Sure gonna try many more Indian (south Indian) dishes with this. So as a first step I thought of posting a simple fried rice style quinoa recipe that is easy to prepare. It’s not at all any complicated to cook quinoa, just like rice, have to wash it and cook with water in the ratio of 1: 2 – 1 part quinoa means, 2 parts of water. Simple, but when I wanted to cook, I was blank how to cook it in our cooker. So I am sure this will help who ever trying out to cook quinoa for the first time like me. Since I am going to try more dishes out of it, will post when I try different method of cooking – like direct pressure cooker without keeping in a container and electric rice cooker. This is very healthy as it’s rich in protein and many other nutrients. Diabetic friendly!
I have made it so simple without any sauces or anything, like my indian style fried rice. You can follow your the same with your favourite fried rice recipe, just replace rice with cooked quinoa.
