Quinoa and Vegetable Pulao

Prep time: 20 Minutes
Moderately Easy
Serves 4

  • 250 g of quinoa

  • 500 ml warm water

  • 1 medium onion, chopped fine

  • 2 tbsps. oil

  • 1/2 tsp. of cumin seeds

  • 4 drops Clove Spice Drops®

  • 3 drops Cinnamon Spice Drops®

  • 4 drops Cardamom Spice Drops®

  • 4 drops Pepper Spice Drops®

  • 1 tsp. finely chopped garlic

  • 1/2 tsp. grated ginger,

  • 250 g mixed frozen vegetables (carrot, beans, cauliflower)

  • 2 tbsps. coriander leaves (optional) and Salt to taste

  1. Heat the oil in a pan, preferably non-stick.
  2. Add the cumin seeds and once they start to crackle, add the chopped onions.
  3. Fry until the onion turns soft and then add the ginger and garlic. Sauté for 2 mins or until the aroma of fried garlic comes through.
  4. Add the vegetables along with the fresh coriander. Stir and leave covered for 4-5 mins until the vegetables are slightly cooked but still have a bit of a crunch.
  5. Stir in the quinoa into the pan. Add water, salt to taste and bring to boil.
  6. Then lower the heat to simmer and cover to cook for about 5 mins. Ensure heat is low to prevent the quinoa from sticking to the pan.
  7. Once the quinoa is fluffed up and cooked, add in all the Spice Drops®. Mix well to get an even blend of all the flavours. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot.
