Egg quinoa recipe, Indian quinoa recipes

Egg quinoa is a quick and easy to make main dish prepared by adding cooked white quinoa to scrambled eggs which is flavored with cilantro. This egg quinoa is a replica of Indian egg rice which is made with just handful of ingredients, so I thought why not try the recipe with quinoa so I replaced rice with quinoa to make it more healthy. So if you are looking for a quick lunch box recipe here is one. So let’s get to the making!
