Coconut quinoa recipe, Indian quinoa recipes

Coconut Quinoa (keen- wah) is a savory dish prepared by tossing quinoa in tempered coconut mixture. Yes you guessed it right! But before guessing you might think that this combo might not work, Its totally fine I can hear guys, this is what I heard from my husband as well when I told about this combo, but trust it did work out and the dish turned out super yummy.

Okay now I heard your guessing also, yes this is our traditional South Indian style coconut rice in which I replaced rice with quinoa and gave it a healthy twist. This dish works great as lunch box recipe as well as I packed it for my hubby with chips and he loved it. So if you have quinoa at home get your hands on that and get started.

I cooked quinoa in Instant pot but thought many might not be interested in cook just quinoa in it/ some might not have IP at home so attached old pictures of cooking quinoa from stove top method. So let’s get to the making!
