I have cooked the quinoa and spiced quinoa seperately and mixed it together with a tiny bit of chaat masala and freshly chopped coriander leaves. Like me, you can also have the quinoa cooked before hand and store it in the refrigerator and use it whenever you need it.

I have cooked the pumpkin with Indian spices ( I made it spicy though) and smashed it using the back of the wooden spoon before mixing it with the quinoa.
