Interestingly, I just bought some quinoa flour to figure out if I can make a decent pasta out of it. it's bleeping expensive though. That's the rub with these things.
I have learned a lot of ways to steer away from flours in many things - including European cakes, but bread. That is a whole 'nother beast.
I love cooking and yes, making something with your hands in the kitchen is awesome, but Indian cuisine is somewhat of a science too and mixing flavors and techniques is fun.
