Ingredients for Red Quinoa & Paneer Asian Fusion
Red Quinoa is the sister of white quinoa which is commonly found. There is not much difference between the both.
It has a mild and nutty flavor and its scarlet color makes the dish more appealing. Red quinoa is a great source of fiber and protein containing all 8 essential amino acids.
This ancient grain is healthy, delicious and can be prepared quickly in few minutes. Red quinoa has more of a sprouted texture when cooked and is great for our healthy diet.
Paneer also know as cottage cheese has calcium and protein and by using this ingredient I have given an Indian flavor to the red quinoa recipe.
