Quinoa is a grain that has little crunchy texture. It gives a nutty flavor when cooked. Quinoa belongs to spinach family. It is rich in proteins and fiber. Though Quinoa is not a very common grain in many kitchens, many are trying to explore this wonder grain due its health benefits.
Quinoa is a very good source of manganese as well as a good source of magnesium, iron, copper and phosphorus; this "grain" may be especially valuable for persons with migraine headaches, diabetes and atherosclerosis. Source: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=142
I made Dosas with Quinoa and they tasted sooo delicious!! This is an instant dosa and doesn't need any fermentation. And these are very easy and quick to make.
