  1. How to boil Quinoa? Add white quinoa to a deep bottomed saucepan, add enough water and boil over medium heat covered. It should take you about 10-15 mins. Strain and keep aside.
  2. How to make Oats Flour? Dry roast old fashioned oats or quick oats over medium flame on a skillet until slightly golden & fragrant. Turn off the flame & allow them to cool down. Grind to a fine powder in a mixer grinder. Set aside or store in an air tight jar for future use.
  3. How to Crumble or grate paneer? If useing paneer directly from the frezzer, boil the slab in water for 3-4 mins. This will make the slab soft. Crumble it either with your fingers or a fork. You may also grate it with a regular grater.
  4. Add more oats flour if need be: If you find the dough to be sticky or slimy just add some more oats flour. 1 tsp at a time and adjust the consistency of the dough.
