Title: Jain Style South Indian Coconut Quinoa with Seasonal Veggies


– 1 cup Quinoa
– 2 cups water
– 1 cup diced vegetables (carrots, beans, bell peppers)
– 1/2 cup grated coconut
– 2 teaspoons coconut oil
– Salt to taste
– Spices: 1 teaspoon mustard seeds, 1 teaspoon urad dal, a pinch of asafetida, 2 dried red chilies, a few curry leaves


1. Rinse quinoa under cool water until water runs clear. This removes the quinoa’s natural coating, called saponin, which can make it taste bitter or soapy.

2. In a deep dish, bring the quinoa and water to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat, cover and let it simmer until quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed. This should take about 15 minutes; once done, set it aside.

3. Meanwhile, you can cook the vegetables. Heat the coconut oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. Once they splutter, add in urad dal, red chilies, asafetida, and finally the curry leaves. Sauté for a few seconds until dal turns golden.

4. Add the diced vegetables, season with salt and cook on medium heat until they tender but still crispy.

5. Now, add the cooked quinoa and grated coconut to the pan. Mix well, ensuring the vegetables and spices are evenly distributed throughout the quinoa.

6. Close the pan with a lid and cook on low heat for another 5 minutes, allowing all flavors to blend together.

7. Serve your Jain Style South Indian Coconut Quinoa with Seasonal Veggies fresh and pleasant to the taste, also rich in nutrients.

Enjoy this Indian one-bowl wonder that is under 500 calories and adhere to Jain dietary restrictions. It’s a healthy, satisfying, and flavorful meal that’s quick and easy to prepare, perfect for your busy lifestyle.
