I opened my kitchen cabinets to bags and bags of quinoa. I love quinoa for its rich nutrients. In my household Dosa is a favourite tiffin item that we rarely have. I thought of making a Dosa batter for the following day dinner. Decided to use quinoa in my batter.
This tiffin item is perfect food for weight loss and for its low fat content and high amounts of protein and fibre. It also helps to reduce the cholesterol in the blood system. Quinoa has a balanced set of amino acids. Methi or fenugreek seeds has a medicinal value as it reduces the discomfort of arthritis or joint pain and it helps to flush out your system.
1 cup Mung beans / green gram
1/4 cup quinoa
1 tbsp methi seeds
1 1/2 cup water to soak
Wash and soak all of the above for 6 – 8 hours (or overnight)
Grind the soaked mixture and add the following:
1 tsp Salt
1/2 inch ginger grated or chopped finely
1 or 2 green/red chillies chopped finely (depending on your taste)
1 tbsp Jeera / cumin seeds
So there you go it’s as easy and healthy as that.
