After trying out my first cooking experience with quinoa as kheer, am here with a simple spice powder prepared with rolled oats and quinoa spiced with dry red chillies,channadal,coriander seeds,asafoetida powder and urad dal..I really prepared this spice powder at last moment and finished this usual simple stir fry as something different and also with healthy stuffs in it...This spice powder turned out this stir fry truly healthy with less oil and completely helped to mask the okra's stickiness usually which is quite an hard task for many of us while cooking okras..This simple stir fry tastes awesome with rasam and curd rice and we loved it..
1no Onion (chopped finely)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/2tsp Mustard seeds& urad dal
5nos Curry leaves
For Oats & Quinoa Spice Powder:
1/4cup Rolled oats
3nos Dry red chillies
1tbsp Urad dal
2tbsp Channa dal
2tbsp Coriander seeds

Dry roast the channa dal, urad dal, dry red chillies until they turns golden brown, now add the coriander seeds, and dry roast for few minutes, finally roast the quinoa and rolled oats for few minutes along with asafoetida powder and turmeric powder...Add the salt to the roasted ingredients and grind as coarse powder...conserve in air tightened box..
Heat enough oil and let splutters the mustard seeds,urad dal..add the chopped onions, curry leaves, slit opened green chillies with enough salt and saute until the onions turns transculent..add the chopped okra pieces and saute for few minutes, put the flame in medium and cook for few minutes in simmer with lid closed..finally add 3-4tbsps of oats-quinoa spice powder to the cooking okra pieces and saute until the veggies turns bit crispy..
