After seeing a huge number of Indianized recipes made with Quinoa by the talented chefs at A2Zvegetariancuisine. I thought of making this nimmakaya pulihora or lemon quinoa. I’m extremely happy to say that the end result was awesome. I enjoyed it thoroughly for lunch, it’s a very filling and yummy dish.
