  • 0.50 tsp Mustard Seed
  • 1 tsp Urad Dal
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 3 no Dry Red Chilies
  • 1 pinch Asafoetida (Hing)

  1. In a saucepan, add water, salt and bring to a boil. Add quinoa, cover and cook until the quinoa becomes soft and all the water gets absorbed by quinoa. Uncover the lid, mix gently and let it cool.
