किनोआ खीर  बनाने की प्रक्रिया:

  1. एक गहरे पतीले में एक छोटा कप किनोआ डालें और इसे साफ पानी से धो लें। फिर एक चलनी की मदद से किनोआ को छान लें।
  2. फिर एक कढ़ाई गर्म करें और इसमें 1 बड़ा चम्मच रिफाइंड तेल डालें।
  3. जब रिफाइंड तेल पर्याप्त गरम होजाए तो उसमें धुला हुआ किनोआ डालें और लगातार चलाते हुए भूनें।
  4. अब कढ़ाई में किनोआ खीर बनाने के लिए लिया गए दूध को आधी से ज्यादा मात्रा में डालें और सामग्री को उबलते हुए  पकने दें। दूध में उबाल आने पर आंच को कम कर दें।
  5. सामग्री को 20 मिनट के लिए कम आंच पर पकाने दें। इतनी देर में किनोआ नरम हो जाएगा।
  6. फिर कढ़ाई में शेष दूध भी डाल दें और सामग्री को गाढ़ा होने तक चलाते हुए पकाएं।
  7. जब सामग्री पक कर गाढ़ी होजाए, तो इसमें स्वाद के अनुसार चीनी और छोटी इलायची डालें और अच्छी तरह से मिलाएं।
