Rasam quinoa recipe, Quinoa recipes

Rasam quinoa is a comforting and delicious main dish prepared by adding hot rasam (basically Indian version of tomato pepper soup) onto cooked mashy quinoa topped with a dollop of homemade ghee to slurp. As season gets cold we are reminded of this rasam and we usually relish either with rice/ idli but have been getting queries if it goes well quinoa do thought why not share my version if rasam quinoa. There is even more easy version of rasam quinoa which my friends make just add all rasam ingredients in a cooker/ instant pot along with quinoa, tamarind extract and water. Pressure cook for 2 minutes and soupy rasam quinoa ready to slurp. I haven’t tried this version yet so cant really comment on it. In thus post I haven’t explained in detail my pepper rasam as I have already posted its recipe with video earlier for which you can find link below:

In this recipe and for the other quinoa recipes that I posted earlier I have been using white quinoa that I purchased from COSTCO. The speciality of this is that the quinoa is pre washed which saves our time. If you are looking to purchase it click on the link below:
