Quinoa Potato Patties Recipe (Vegan & Glutenfree)

Quinoa” is the magic word of the season….You must have heard about it from friends, family, stores, media or somewhere or the other……

Although it recently came into limelight however quinoa has been around since 3000yrs back.

It is a species of the ‘grain-like crop’ grown primerly for it’s seed (Chenopodium) and is closely related to beetroots, spinach n more.

It’s also “Gluten Free” hence great for vegans, lactose intolerant n more.

Also high in protein, amino acids and calcium….kind of a SUPER FOOD  :))

Well enough gyan, coming back to the main topic, on the occasion of Krishna Janamasthmi, wanted to make something vegan hence this recipe.

Since it’s gluton free hence we have to combine quinoa with a little bit of potato & chestnut flour to make it bindable.

PS: Quinoa falls in the same family of Ramdana (Amaranth) which is eaten during fasts/vrat.
