  3. Once the onions changes color, add chopped potato and Green peas.
  4. Once potatoes are cooked, pour water and add salt as needed.
  5. Bring the water to a boil. Add Rava along with Quinoa and stir continuously so no lumps are formed.
  6. Cover and cook on a low flame for about 2 minutes until the water evaporates.
  7. Remove lid. Add chopped coriander. Stir well. Allow to rest for a while.
  8. Serve hot. Sprinkle Quinoa pops (Chili Lime flavor) generously on the Rava to make it tastier.
My Tip: Quinoa being a super food adds lot of Nutritional value to this healthy meal. Since popped Quinoa with the flavors enhance the dish, it is equally liked by kids. As a Food Nutritionist, I recommend this for healthy breakfast eating families.
