Quinoa pulao

I got the idea to experiment with quinoa after I read Susan's fatfree vegan cooking. Thank you for your suggestion. It turned out to be a fabulous dish.

- 1 cup quinoa
- 3 cups of mixed vegetable
(I used peas, carrots, capsicum, potatoes, beans)
- 1 onion
- 1 tomatoes
- 3 cloves
- 1 tsp jeera
- 2 green chili slit into half
- 2 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp oil
- salt to taste

1. Clean Quinoa a couple of times. In 2 cups of water add the Quinoa. Once it comes to a boil reduce to a simmer and cook it covered for 15 minutes or until the water evaporates.
2. In a skillet pour the oil and add the cloves, jeera. Once the jeera turns brown add the chillies and onions. Fry till it becomes soft. Add tomatoes and cook till it becomes soft.
3. Add the other vegetables and cook till they turn soft. Add the garam masala and salt. Cook for another 3 minutes.
4. Add the cooked quinoa and mix it well.

Garnish it with cilantro and serve it hot. I ended serving this with some leftover sambar. Tastes almost like cracked wheat.
