hey guys I'm Nisa Homey and welcomeback to my channel.
today, I'm sharing a healthy high-protein, nutrient-densedinner recipe which can be easily made in just under 30 minutes so withoutwasting much time let's get started with the recipe.
Into a bowl I'm adding in 1/4cup of quinoa, now for those who are new to quinoa; quinoa is a seed green and itis not a cereal grain.
quinoa is a complete source of protein it has allthe nine essential amino acids.
it is one of the best (source) of plant-based protein forvegetarians.
when you're using quinoa make sure that you wash and rinse itthoroughly at least a couple of times as quinoa has a bitter natural coatingcalled saponin so it actually makes the quinoa bitterif you don't wash it thoroughly.
so into a bowl I'm adding in 1/4 cup of quinoaalso note that quinoa is written as QUINOA but it is pronounced as quinoanot KENOWAH.
Into this I'm adding in tur dal you can also use masoor dal ormoong dal instead tur dal.
Now into this I'm adding in some water, I'll be rinsingand washing this thoroughly a couple of times and then I'll be again soaking itfor about 10 to 15 minutes so you need to wash it and rinse it thoroughly toremove the natural bitter coating called saponins.
So I'm going to allow it tosoak for about 10 to 15 minutes now the vegetables I am using are 1 medium sizedcarrot chopped, 10 to 15 beans chopped, half of an onion chopped, four to five garlic cloves chopped, 1/4 inch of ginger chopped, 2 3 green chilies slit; greenchilies you can increase or decrease to suit your taste.
I'm heating my pressure cooker with 1 tablespoon wood pressed coconut oil, oncethe oil is heated I'm adding in 1/2 TSP jeera also known as cumin seeds and once it starts to splatter I'madding in a small piece of mace, 5 whole black peppercorns ,and three tofour cloves about four to five crushed cardamom, 1 stick of cinnamon which I'mbreaking into two and adding into this I'm adding in the chopped onion, gingergarlic and green chilli, and in two whole red chillies, beans, chopped carrots lightlysaute the vegetables for about a minute or two on low flame.
After about a minuteand in 1/2 TSP turmeric powder, 1/4 TSP black pepper powder – to help the turmericabsorb faster into your body give it a mix, add in the washed rinsedand strained the quinoa and dal.
add in 1/4 tsp hing (asafoetida) and pink Himalayan salt asneeded.
Give this all a mix.
