Quinoa Savory Crepes/Dosai

Everyone knows the great attributes of quinoa. I like to eat healthy and like the occasional quinoa salad, as a true blue Mylapore Maami, I can only take so much salad! A word of caution: I am a Maami mostly in food. Friends of mine even use quinoa instead of rice and hang on to our 3 (4/5) course meal. So I am always experimenting with making non-Maami sappadu into Maami sappadu. So here is one of my favorites. Eat it for any meal, preferably breakfast/brunch or tiffin or dinner.  It comes with maami guarantee that it is super yummy.
