Quinoa Idli (Instant)

Quinoa – something I heard a few years ago. A very healthy grain which is a rich source of protein. I got this recipe from here and we love it.. Anytime a quick breakfast, a healthy breakfast and a tasty one is surely a winner as it comes more repeatedly on the menu. This idli screams healthy and is delicious. I served it with coconut chutney.

Method
Heat a pan on high heat for around 2 minutes, and reduce the flame and roast the quinoa for around 2 to 3 minutes and grind to a powder and set aside.Do the same for oats also. Grind them both to a powder and set aside

Mix the ravai, kezhvaragu maavu, salt  and baking soda with the powdered quinoa and oats. Initially add about 1 cup of curd and mix them well with a spatula. Add the chopped coriander leaves and add the remaining yogurt and stir to combine.
The batter should be similar to a normal idli batter consistency, if not add some more water. Grease the idli moulds, and the pour the batter, steam it in the cooker until the idli's are cooked.
Serve warm with sambar and chutney.
