Quinoa Payasam / Quinoa kheer / Payasam Recipes


I never heard about quinoa until I came into the blogging world. Hope many of you also like me. First time I saw this in Mustafa Centre, but did not buy as I have no idea what to do. After that I searched net and came across some great recipes. I saw many of our friends trying this payasam and I too thought of trying the sweet recipe first, which also suits for my event.


Ingredients

  • Quinoa seeds - 1 cup
  • Water - 2 cups
  • Salt - a pinch (optional)
  • Milk - 3/4 litre
  • Sugar - 1.5 cups (adjust accordingly to the sweetness)
  • Nuts - few cashews, almonds, pista
  • Raisins - few
  • Few strands of saffron
  • Ghee for frying the nuts - 1 tsp


Method

  • Wash and cook quinoa with 2 cups of water and salt in the pressure cooker for 3 whistles.



  • In a small pan, add ghee and fry the nuts and raisins and keep aside.
  • In a wide pan, add the milk and saffron and allow the milk to boil.
  • Now add in the cooked quinoa and sugar and let it cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the fried nuts and raisins, give a stir.
  • Healthy and delicious quinoa payasam is ready to be served. 



Note: 
Quinoa can be cooked without the pressure cooker also, but takes more than 10 min.
Salt is optional. We used to add a pinch of salt as we feel it enhances the taste.
