Quinoa Parsley Pulao

I bought a bunch of parsley last week from farmer's market.  You could replace it with any greens like Methi/Coriander or even spinach.  Parsley has wonderful heath benefits.. The key is to use as much as greens as possible, just give a round of try on all of them and see if it suits your palate. 

What you need?

Parsley-1 bunch
Tofu cut into small cubes
Gr chillies-1 (more as per choice)
Ginger-1/2 inch)
Quinoa-1 cup (water is 1:2)

Tadka:

Oil-2 Tbsp
mustard seeds-1/2 tsp (optional)
Cumin-1/2 tsp
Spice powder(garam masala) - 1/2 tsp

Prep work:

Remove stems from parsley bunch, wash and set aside.

I used blender to cut the parsley, ginger and gr chillies fine since my little one would not eat.  You could cut them fine too.

How to make?

1. Cook Quinoa with 1:2 water in rice cooker.  Once done, take the vessel out, open the lid and fluff it with fork and let it cool.

2.  In a kadai, heat oil, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, spice powder, asofoedita, add tofu, cut parsley ginger chilli mix, fry them for few mins.

3. Add the fluffed quinoa and salt, mix well

Serve with Raita or any other side dish of your choice.   I served with veggie yogurt sauce.
