Roasted Quinoa Cakes

Quinoa is a grain-like seed that is mainly grown in the northern regions of South America. It is known for its high protein content and is considered to be a source of complete protein. Quinoa has a coating of bitter-tasting saponins. Although, the grains are processed to remove these coatings, it is recommended that you wash them thoroughly to get rid of any bitter taste that may otherwise spoil the dish. Quinoa is first roasted until it gives out a nutty aroma after which it is washed before cooking. Here, I have added crumbled tofu to make the patties tastier. Although it is optional, addition of tofu or paneer acts like a good binding agent and helps to form patties without causing any breakage.
