Khichdi is pretty much a staple dish when it comes to Indian cuisine. The ease of making Khichdi further makes it an evergreen recipe. The comforting combination of rice, dal and spices can be had any time of the day and during any weather or season. The presence of dal in the dish makes it protein-rich, but what if we subsituted rice in the dish with the protein and fibre-rich quinoa? The quinoa khichdi is the resultant dish made by combining this versatile protein duo.

Quinoa has a number of health benefits, which make it a wholesome and healthy grain to include in your diet. Apart from being a complete source of protein, Quinoa also has a good amount of Omega-3 fatty acids which reduce unhealthy cholesterol. Further, there are a number of vitamins and antioxidants that naturally occur in Quinoa therefore protecting against free radical damage.
