Quinoa and Foxtail Millet Khichadi: This is a lovely blend of two super foods which are full of nutrition,rich in antioxidants,gluten free and healthier too. Can indulge guilt free. I love it with papad and pineapple Raita. Ingredients: Fox tail Millet-1/2 cup Quinoa 1/2 cup. Whole Green Mung beans-1/4 cup Red, green and yellow peppers- 1 cup( chopped ) pepper corns1/2 son Lemon juice-1 spn Kasturi methi-1 spn(fenugreek leaves) Red chilli pdr-1/2 spn Dhania jeera Pdr-1 tspn Green chilli-1 Jeera 1 spn Salt to taste Coriander leaves. Wash quinoa and millet strain and keep aside. Now add 1 spoon of butter in a non stick pan( preferably ). Add a t spn of cumin and pepper corns and when it crackles toss in the quinoa and the millet and roast for about 3-4 mins. Then add salt and about 2 cups of water and cook them for about 10-12 mins on low flame once it becomes fluffy Now in a kadai take some oil, add the cumin and dhania powder, turmeric pdr and red chilli powder.cook for another 3-4 mins on closed lid. Now add the cut tri coloured peppers, and lemon juice and put off the gas. The pepper gets cooked in the pan and gives a crunchy taste as it’s not over cooked.Garnish with coriander leaves and Kasturi methi. Enjoy with plain curds,Raita,pickle and Papad.
