Quinoa Recipes: Quinoa Idly


The next recipe I tried with quinoa is idli. We really enjoyed it. Except for the color, it was exactly like the regular idli.

Ingredients:Quinoa Idly (Idli)

Idli rice/Par boiled rice 1 1/2 cups
Quinoa 1/3/4 cups
Urud dhal 1/2 cup
Fenugreek seeds 1 tspn
Salt 2 1/2 tspn
Water As required



  1. Soak rice and quinoa for about 4 – 6 hours. In another bowl soak urud dhal and fenugreek seeds for about 4 hours.
  2. Grind urud dhal into a smooth paste by adding water as required and remove from grinder/blender.
  3. Then take rice and quinoa together to the grinder/blender and grind well by adding water as required.
  4. Now add the grinded urud dhal and salt to the grinder and allow it to grind until everything is uniformly mixed.
  5. Remove from the grinder/blender and allow it to ferment for about 8 hours.
  6. Heat the steaming pan and apply oil to the idli moulds. Add the fermented dough to the moulds as required and allow it to cook for few minutes.
  7. Remove the idli moulds from heat and allow it to cool. Take the idli from the moulds and serve hot with chutneys or sambhar.
