“Upma is a pilaf preparation from South India. (P.S. Upma is typically mildly spiced and served with coconut chutney or ginger chutney, e.g., recipes #110219, #116586. For more spice, select a chutney which suits your tastes.) This recipe is different from most Upma recipes in using a pressure cooker and quinoa instead of semolina. You can substitute 1-1/4 cup semolina (more traditional) for the quinoa and your choice of chopped seasonal vegetables for the peas. From the Sakthi Foundation ayurvedic recipes: http://www.sakthifoundation.org/kitchen_dinner-2.htm”
