Prepare Quinoa:

Sauté Vegetables:

    • In a separate pan, heat oil over medium heat.
    • Add cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Once they splutter, add chopped onions and sauté until translucent.
    • Add mixed vegetables and cook until they are slightly tender.

Combine and Season:

    • Add chopped tomatoes to the vegetables and cook until they soften.
    • Add cooked quinoa to the vegetables and mix well.
    • Season with turmeric powder, garam masala, cumin powder, coriander powder, and salt. Stir to combine.

Garnish and Serve:

    • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves (optional).
