Quinoa – Coconut Payasam
Hope you all had a wonderful Deepavali. We had a good one too. I made this yummy and healthy payasam on Diwali day. Tasted super delicious and was a hit at our house.
Wash quinoa well, add 1 cup of water and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
Meanwhile, bring milk to a boil. Add sugar mix well until it melts in the milk. Add cardamom seeds and mix well.
Finally add coconut + cooked quinoa mix well and keep the contents on medium low flame for some time.
When the milk seems to boil again, turn off the flame.
Heat ghee in a small pan, add cashews + raisins and sauté well.
Pour this on top of the prepared payasam and mix well.
Enjoy this delicious payasam and feel happy :)
