Quinoa Lunch

As a Malayali, I have been a predominant rice eater. A typical Kerala lunch has par boiled brown rice eaten with an array of healthy curries.
Rice, even brown, is high carb and a candidate to be off the menu.
That’s when I started my affair with quinoa. It has a lot of health benefits and is a seed, not even a grain.
The taste of lunch is on the accompanying curries. The taste is retained just by substituting rice with quinoa.
Here the coconut based dal (paripp), kadala (chickpeas), raw banana mezhukkupuratty and minute steak gave the same satisfying lunch feel.
End of Rice!!
