I also used half quantities for 2 people and it was more than sufficient. I also tried a 50/50 mixture of milk and coconut milk and would stick with that. I added more liquid during cooking, depends how thick you want it to be. Also the quinoa I used took 20 mins to cook. Very easy meal to prepare and extremely tasty. Will definetly add it to my favourites.

This is amazing!!! I have adapted the veggies, I generally use a mix of fresh veggies rather than frozen mixed veg but it works very well indeed. I halved the ingredients because it made too much and still there was loads! Very healthy and very tasty - how often do you get that?!!

Amazing... a friend recommended I try eating Quinoa so I bought a bag. This was the first result I had from google, somehow it knew my favourite dish was Singapore laksa. Was impressed that you could make Laksa from plain milk...! Yes!

As it is, this recipe failed to impress me. It was bland, and I would rather go for another recipe entirely if this one needs so much adaptation to work.

if i were to make this with coconut milk and then store it in the fridge in an air tight container how long should it last?

Yummy! I made it with soya milk, in fact I'm eating it now. Will make it again. Has anyone had experience with freezing it?

Really liked this recipe - so quick, easy & tasty. I used tikka paste rather than korma, and I also used both normal and coconut milk. Recipe states it will feed 4, but looking at our leftovers I think it could be more like a meal for 6 depending on portion sizes. Will definately make again.

Suzie, did you heat the milk before pouring it into the pot? I made the mistake of pouring cold milk into a hot pan in another recipe once - it curdled badly. I only had one can of coconut milk on hand, so I used that and the rest regular milk - heated them together in a small pot on the stove before adding to the soup. It was still delicious with the milk, but next time it'll be all coconut, just because I love it. Leftovers are great - I'm eating a bowl right now! I don't think it would be as good on day 2 if made with rice. Quinoa soaks up a lot of liquid, just as rice does, but the quinoa still retains its bite. Rice would get too soggy.

Did anyone find theirs curdled? I followed the recipe to the letter, but mine curdled, and looked disgusting. Very disappointed!
