Grapefruit Quinoa Pulihora

After trying rice with grapefruit, this time i tried making pulihora using quinoa and grapefruit juice instead of rice and lemon/ tamarind..For my surprise this pulihora turned out super delicious, the grapefruits i used were very much sour but fortunately not bitter..Am so happy to prepare this healthy version of pulihora which goes for an easy, quick and simple cooking process...Sometimes grapefruits have their bitternes, in case if the grapefruit juice is slightly bitter, deduce the quantity of grapefruit juice and add lemon juice along with the grapefruit juice,that will definitely help to mask the bitter taste...When served along with spicy potato fries, this pulihora tastes truly fabulous and both together turned out lunch truly filling and fabulous..Sending this healthy pulihora to Satya's Twist The Traditional - Pulihora & to Only Original Recipes guest hosted by Nivi,event by Pari..

I remember asking about the tartness of grapefruit when you blogged another recipe. The grapefruit I ate for the first time was almost bitter and never had the courage again to try it. You are tempting me to do so. Very interesting recipe, Priya.
