Beans & Quinoa Flakes Stir Fry

After making some bakes with quinoa flakes, they were almost half a packet of quinoa flakes were sitting in my pantry since a long, i definitely want to give them a second life, thats the reason i used those quinoa flakes in our usual beans stir fry.. Actually i used the quinoa flakes instead of grated coconut flakes which i usually used to add to my stir fries whenever i prepare them with veggies, few of my stir fries are prepared also with rolled oats, but this time i wanted to finish the quinoa flakes as soon as possible..Quinoa flakes get well mixed with bean stir fry  and none can find out those flakes coz once cooked those quinoa flakes turned transparent and presonally i felt its one of the best way to sneak those healthy quinoa flakes.

Beans & Quinoa flakes stir fry

2cups Beans (chopped finely)
1/4cup Moong dal (soaked for half an hour)
3tbsp Quinoa flakes
1no Onion (big & chopped finely)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
Few curry leaves
Salt
Oil

Heat enough oil, let crack the mustard seeds and urad dal..add immediately the chopped onions, slit opened green chillies, curry leaves and salt, sauté until the onions turns transculent, now add the chopped beans and soaked moong dal, sauté everything in simmer..Sprinkle some water and close the pan with lid, cook in medium high flame until the veggies get almost cooked, now add the quinoa flakes and cook in high flame until the water gets disappears..

Serve hot as side dish with rice..
