Quinoa Oats Idlis

Last Updated on

Quinoa is gluten free
seeds and rich source of protein and fiber. Quinoa is one of the few plant sources
of complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids. It is also high
in magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium, phosphorus, vitamins and many
beneficial antioxidants.
What I love about quinoa is that, it is not only delicious
but also versatile.  You can prepare any dish
with quinoa like idli, snacks, main course or dessert. I tried quinoa in every
course, will share other recipes soon. Oats also protein rich ingredients…
adding both ingredients together with semolina makes awesome snack.  
To make this healthy idlis just roasted quinoa and oats in
dry pan and grind them till to ground powder. Combining quinoa, oats and
semolina with sour buttermilk and vegetables to make these tempting idlis and
served with tomato chutney.

  1. I started replacing rice with quinoa these days when grinding the idli batter. But never included oats. It's either one. :-)After seeing this recipe, I need to definitely try combining quinoa and oats. Love the tempering. It's like rava idli.
