Tomato Quinoa

Quinoa - 3/4 cup
Olive Oil - 1/2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Green Chilies - 2, chopped
Onion - 1/2, chopped
Tomato - 2, peeled and chopped
Roasted Peanuts - a handful

Place the quinoa in a strainer and wash well for at least a couple of minutes. Add 2 cups of water and cook on medium heat till the water dries up and the quinoa is fluffy. The quinoa looks transparent when it is cooked. Keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and once they start crackling, add chopped green chilies, chopped onion and curry leaves. Saute till the onion gets soft.

Add chopped tomato and salt and cook on low fire till the tomato gets mushy and turns into a sauce.

Then add quinoa and roasted peanuts, mix everything well and serve.
