I usually make chinese fried rice or japanese style fried rice or vegetable fried rice or chinese egg fried rice for lunch. Since I have some homemade green gram sprouts in fridge, I prepared in the same way of veg fried rice. You don’t need any side dish for this rice, just potato chips or ketchup is enough. You can pack this sprouts rice for lunch box for kids or adults or get together.

Quinoa biryani / Quinoa vegetable biryani is a super healthy and quick to make dish with lots of protein, no starch and it is a gluten free. I followed the vegetable biryani recipe and added quinoa instead of rice. I know, this dish may not look good but it tasted delicious with nutty flavor and filling.

Serve this quinoa biryani with onion raita or plain yogurt and chips. (please refer note section for tips)

I didn’t soak my quinoa, if you want. You can soak it for 15 mins and then cook.
Please check your quinoa bag for the required amount of water. Usually it will be 2 cups of water for 1 cup of quinoa. Since I added veggies and yogurt, I used ¾ cup of water for ½ cup of quinoa.
Adjust the amount of spicy taste according to your taste buds.
You can reduce the amount of vegetables, I love vegetables so I added a lot.
