  1. we don’t find quinoa in India, it can only be imported. The seel you are talking about is? amaranth in english, & also called rajgira in India. I have aded this ti regulat khichari many times, but on its own it can make inly a vety soft type khichri, as it does not cook with its grains separate, like rice or quinoa. Moreover, don’t bother too much about quinoa as you are better off eating whatever grows around you. The allergies are more when u eat food not local to you

  2. The water in this, rule of thumb is quinoa needs 2.5 times of water to cook, & dal for this texture needs 3 or 4 times the water (all by volume)?

  3. I don’t think qinoa grows in India at all, so there’s no name 4 it.in the Indian languages. But it is, like,? cousin of chaulai (the seel ke laddu we eat in Punjab). I have looked for this info 4 several yrs, & not found the name. Pls share with us if u find it.

  4. Quinoa is an Incan super food/protein originated from PERU, highly? regarded in that culture for its nutritional benefits. Just a quick fact, Thanks 🙂

  5. I am going to share that tecipe with my daughter. She is going to love? it. Thank you for sharing it…..Bless
