Mixed Vegetable Quinoa

Hello Everyone !!

Hope it was great week ending with the Oscars and fantastic movie winners !

Yet another Monday ! 😦 … Well, let’s make our boring weekdays interesting with yummy and colorful food !! πŸ™‚

Today I brought you all an Indian adaptation of cooking ‘Quinoa’, often referred to as Super food !

This dish is an absolute healthy one and easy to make ~ Can’t beat that combo anytime πŸ™‚

It has mixed vegetables and quinoa and kind of tastes like our desi pulao … Here’s a little sneak peak and I am sure you are hungry by now, so let me not waste any further time and dig in to the details !!
