    • 3/4 cup of quinoa
    • 1/2 cup of peas
    • 1 lime
    • 1 spring onion
    • 1 small tomato
    • 1 teaspoon curry powder
    • 1-2 cloves of fresh green garlic (along with the green stem)
    • Coriander to garnish
    • 5-10 black pepper corns


    1. In a pot, put about 1.5 cups (twice as much as the quinoa) of water, and the quinoa and boil for 10-15 minutes. I had only frozen peas, and so added them in as well - which was a mistake, coz the peas have lost their right green color, this way. I'd add the peas in last along with the other veggies, the next time.
    2. Add the juice of half a lime and the curry powder when the pot first comes to a boil. Mix well.
    3. Chop the tomatoes, spring onion and garlic.
    4. Turn off the heat after 15 minutes max. Let it cool for 5 minutes. Then add the rest of the veggies. Mix well.
    5. Add the black pepper powder and coriander to garnish along with the remaining lime juice.
