Indian Almond-Quinoa Pilaf

This Indian recipe is special in that it features almonds, which are more traditionally associated with sweets and desserts. This savory dish uses a base of quinoa, which provides a nice source of protein. It’s fairly mild, but can be easily accentuated by replacing the turmeric with a stronger spice.

I’ve wanted to introduce almond recipes to this site for a while, and this video is a perfect introduction. The chef explains the dish’s origin and flavor combinations with a friendly, conversational style that I really appreciate.
