Brinjal / Eggplant Quinoa

I had some left over brinjals / Eggplant from last week. With kids won't come home for lunch I wanted to try out Brinjal Quinoa. It is similar to Vangai Bath but replace rice with Quinoa. I have added some peanuts to the Quinoa to have some nutty flavour. It really came out well. For Masala Powder you can use either Vaangi Bath made at home or store brought one. You can try out with bisibelabath masala powder also
