Blogging Marathon# 26: Week 4/ Day 2

Theme: Revisiting Old Posts with New Pictures

Dish: Quinoa Pulihora (from December 2009)

This quinoa pulihora is one of the top 10 posts on my blog and it desperately needed a face lift. Quinoa is one of the whole grains that I use quite frequently. Its nutty and I love how it swells up with that lovely saturn ring around it after cooking. 

Quinoa can be used in place of rice in many Indian recipes and this lemon flavored quinoa is one of the quickest and easiest dishes that I make.
