You can try this one pot Quinoa Pulao for lunch or dinner and can be taken as a lunch box recipe. It is weight loss friendly. And it is diabetic friendly too. I have added more carrot and beans. It is cooked to perfection and will definitely come fluffy. You can try this recipe without any doubt. The spices will give a nice flavor and mint will mask the flavor of Quinoa. Pulao will be enriched with a very nice flavor.  The thing I like very much is that it can be made very very quickly.
