The most interesting thing about this dish is, it’s so versatile. This can be served by itself as a snack, as side dish or you can stuff make a sandwich out of this (Spicy Quinoa & Potato Cake Burger?). I personally like some semi-spicy Indian sauce on the side such as Tomato & Chilly chutney.

I have boiled quinoa and potatoes  separately and mixed together with spices. Just be mindful about the quantity of green chilly you add, you may make it spicy as per your taste.
