Quinoa upma

I am becoming a big fan of Quinoa and this time I tried making a south indian style upma. It tasted really good. Give it a try...

- 1 cup quinoa
- 3 cups of mixed vegetable
(I used peas, carrots, capsicum, potatoes, beans, frozen black eye peas)
- 1 tomatoes
- 1/2 tsp hing
- salt to taste

- 1 tsp mustard seeds
- 1 tsp urad dhal
- 1 tsp channa dhal
- 2 green chili slit into half
- 1 tsp of minced ginger
- few curry leaves
- 1 tsp oil

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. (or) In a microwave safe bowl add the Quinoa and 3 cups of water and cook for 25 minutes.
2. In a skillet pour the oil and add the mustard seeds. Once the mustard seeds start to splutter add channa dhal, urad dhal and fry till they turn brown. Add the chillies, curry leaves and ginger. Fry till it becomes soft. Add tomatoes and all the other vegetable and cook till it becomes soft.
3. Add the cooked quinoa and mix it well. Cook for another 3-4 minutes.

Garnish it with cilantro and serve it hot. Can serve it with sambar, thogayal or just plain pickle.
