Indian Quinoa Pulao Recipes
Quinoa is a gluten-free super grain that has been gaining a lot of popularity over the last few years. While it looks very similar to the pearl millet easily available in India, I don’t believe there’s an Indian name for quinoa or that it’s locally produced. You can definitely buy quinoa online in India though. Since it’s very easily available in Sydney (even more so than Singapore), I’ve been trying to cook up Indian quinoa recipes that suit our palates. Quinoa pulao also makes a great lunchbox recipe since it doesn’t dry out as much as rice pulao tends to.

Instructions
  1. Press the saute button on the Instant Pot. Once it displays hot, add the oil and then add the bay leaf and cumin seeds.
  2. Add the onion, ginger and garlic paste and stir. Add in the veggies, spices and the rinsed Quinoa Add water and stir everything together and close the pot.
  3. Press the manual or pressure cook button and cook on high pressure for 1 minute. The pressure valve should be in the sealing position.
  4. Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes and then do a quick pressure release.
  5. Open the instant pot, add the lemon juice and garnish with cilantro.
  6. Serve hot or warm with yogurt.
  7. Rinse quinoa
  8. Heat oil on medium-high heat in a pot. Add the onions and ginger-garlic paste cook, stirring occasionally until the onions are translucent, but not browned.
  9. Add the veggies, spices and uncooked quinoa and cook, stirring occasionally for a couple more minutes. You can let some of the quinoa get a little toasted.
  10. Add 2-1/2 cup water and bring to a boil and reduce the heat to low so that the quinoa and water are simmering while the pot is partially covered (enough to let out some steam).
  11. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from heat. Add the lemon juice and cilantro leaves. Fluff up with a fork.
