Am not that fond of desserts but my recent attraction towards quinoa made me try Kesari with it. nothing a difference in making it with quinoa. Just that you need to know the loop of handling quinoa in the right way.

When I first posted the curd quinoa recipe, I had also mentioned about how to cook it right. While making dessert, it is a bit different as we don’t want it to get mashed as well undercooked.

So, I would suggest soaking the quinoa for 15 minutes before you start cooking this dessert though soaking is not compulsory in other dishes with quinoa.
