This sumptuous dish requires some time to prepare, but it will surely bowl you over with its exotic and exciting flavour and mouth-feel. To start with, the quinoa is cooked in coconut milk, which gives it a very soothing taste.


This Coconut Quinoa is then served with a luscious Coconut Curry, which features a bunch of delicious veggies, a dash of spices and a dose of sumptuous veggie stock too. Red chillies give the Coconut Curry a mild spiciness while tomatoes give it an interesting tanginess. A garnish of mint leaves and a squeeze of lemon adds to the effect, making the Coconut Quinoa with Coconut Curry a top scorer!


Besides Coconut Quinoa you can serve the Coconut Curry with rotis like Bajra Roti , Jowar Bajra Garlic Roti , Bejar Roti , Appa , Makai ki Roti or Chapatis .
