Thereafter, I mixed in kidney beans and chickpeas in it.

Subsequently, I added all the spices and mixed it very well.

Afterwards, I folded in rinsed quinoa and sautéed for few minutes.

Then, I added the remaining ingredients to it and stirred. Further, I let it cook uncovered for about 10 minutes at high flame until the liquid started to absorb. Then, I continued cooking it covered at low-medium flame until all the liquid was absorbed.
