Quinoa Mix Veg Pulao

Quiona slightly roasted - 1 cup

vegetables

Onion - 1 cut 1 inch length
garlic - 2 pods (optional)
carrots-2 cut 1 inch length
beans-10 cut 1 inch length
chow chow (chayote)-1/2 - cut 1 inch length
cauliflower-6 heads - cut 1 inch
broccoli-top shredded, stem sliced lengthwise

Spices

cinnamon powder - 1/2 tsp
cloves-2
cardomom 2 crushed (remove skin) I use powder

cumin seeds - 1 tsp
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil- 1 Tbsp

How to do?

1. I usually cook Quinoa in rice cooker little earlier. Once it is done, I fluff it with fork and keep aside. It gets seperated nicely. Do not add hot quinoa into the dish. It might become mushy although it is ok.
2. Heat oil in Kadai. Add cumin and all the spices. Add onion, garlic and turmeric, fry for 3-4 mins till translucent.
3. Add all the vegetables and turmeric powder and Fry. Cover and cook for few mins.
4. Once vegetables are cooked nicely, do not over cook, add the cooled quinoa. Mix well and keep it for few mins. Adjust salt if required. Switch off the stove and keep the kadai covered. All flavours will mix thoroughly.

Serve simply with Yogurt.
