Quinoa Adai | Quinoa Indian Recipes

        Quinoa adai a nutritious adai prepared with psuedocereal quinoa.I love adai(lentils crepes) because of the fact it is filling and easy compared to regular dosa and requires no fermentation.If you have guest at home on evenings ,without any second thought you can prepare this quinoa adai for dinner.

   Nutritional Value:
    Quinoa can be the best protein variant for vegan and lactose intolerant people.It is also gluten free which means it will be digested early.It also contains iron,vitamin B and potassium and many more.
       Quinoa adai is light compared to traditional adai.I replaced raw rice with quinoa.If you want to eat quinoa but somehow hate it because of its smell then this preparation of adai (masks) helps you get rid of your smell fear.Just in case while pouring you get the smell ,but you can eat it without any fear(you may not feel you are eating adai prepared of quinoa)..
