Quinoa Halwa/Pudding

quinoa_halwa ‘Necessity is the mother of invention’ true that!! Last night I was craving something sweet(yes, again) and I came up with this yummy dessert. Kesari bath/Sheera is one of the easiest thing to do but I thought of subbing rava/sooji with quinoa and sugar with coconut sugar. It turned out so well and this recipe is a keeper guys. I love..
  1. How yummy it tasted
  2. guilt-free because quinoa and coconut sugar
  3. easy-peasy to make
  4. Did I say yummy?
Also, we couldn’t taste the nutty flavor of quinoa at all. The color is brown is because of the coconut sugar. You can also use regular sugar/brown sugar/jaggery. You will need-
  1.  Quinoa – 1 cup
  2. Water- a lil more than 1 1/2 cup
  3. Coconut sugar- 4 tbsp
  4. Ghee- 2 tsp
  5. Cashews & raisins- a handful
  6. Cardamom Powder- a pinch
METHOD
  1. Heat a pan and add a tsp of ghee.
  2. Add cashews and raisins, fry for a min and transfer it to a plate.
  3. Add quinoa and fry for 3-4 mins and transfer it to a plate.
  4. Add water to the same pan, once it starts boiling add quinoa and cardamom powder and let it cook.
  5. Once quinoa is almost cooked, add sugar and keep stirring until evenly mixed.
  6. Add fried cashews and raisins and turn off the flame.
  7. Serve hot and enjoy.
I just wish it looked a little better or wish I could plate it better but I was already in hangry state. Anyhoo, I hope you like it.Thank you.

    1. Let me know how you like it. Coconut sugar is a kind of sugar extracted from flower of coconut palm trees. I use it because of its glycemic index. 🙂
