Quinoa is one of the healthy grains easily available these days in good reputed grocery shops. Quinoa is very beneficial for children growth. It contains iron, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals for child’s growth. Many children might not like to have it with vegetables so I tried my hands on making dosa with it. It’s a perfect breakfast or tiffin recipe for kids. Added dals (lentils) makes it all the more healthier and yummy.

1 cup Quinoa
1/2 cup moong dal chilka (green moong dal)
1/2 cup urad dal
1/2 cup chana dal
1/2 cup oats or poha

Grind the quinoa and dals to get smooth paste, if required add some water, make sure batter should be like dosa batter. Add salt and mix well.
