Quinoa Vangibhath

Vangibhath is one of the famous Karnataka rice dish usually prepared with a special spice powder, eggplant chunks and cooked rice, for a change i choosed this time some cooked quinoa to replace the rice and prepared this delicious,filling and healthy one pot meal which suits prefect for a lunch or for dinner..As most of u would have know that am a great fan of both oats and quinoa, i never stop trying and enjoying our traditional foods by using either oats or quinoa,this quinoa vangibhath is one among those trials which turned out really super delicious ..Am really happy to say that even my teddies and my hubby enjoyed this quinoa vangibhath for lunch with spicy potato fry and boiled eggs..
