    Soak the Quinoa in water for about 2 minutes, then rinse it under running cold water.
    In a pot bring some water to a boil. For every 100g of Quinoa, you will need 250ml of water. Once the water starts boiling add salt, turn the heat to medium. Add quinoa and cover the pot. Let it cook for about 15 – 20 minutes.

    In a bowl mix: Quinoa, Red Bell Pepper, Spring Onions, Parsley, Dried Thyme, Dried Oregano - (save some of the three herbs for the sauce), Garlic (save some for the sauce), Madras curry powder, All Purpose flour and the bread crumbs. Check and adjust the seasoning.
    Roll out the quinoa balls. This is a delicate task, so nice and carefully please !

    Heat some oil in a pan to about medium heat. Once it is hot enough, start frying the quinoa balls. This should take you about 10 – 15 minutes to let them cook all the way through.
