1 cup quinoa
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger root, grated
1/2 fresh green chili, minced, or 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups water
1/2 cup fresh or frozen green peas
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
1/2 cup cashew pieces (optional)
Place the quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse with cold water. Drain well.
In a heavy saucepan, warm the oil and sauté the onions on medium-high heat for 4 or 5 minutes. Add the ginger, chili or cayenne and the quinoa and cook for a minute, stirring constantly. Stir in the turmeric, coriander, cinnamon and salt and cook for another minute, stirring.
Add the water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in the peas, cover and cook for 4 or 5 minutes, until the peas are tender and the water has been absorbed.
Before serving, fluff with a fork and add the cilantro and cashews, if you wish.
