  1. Whisk together yoghurt, lime juice, curry powder, ginger, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add oil in a slow stream, whisking until combined.

  2. Rinse quinoa in a bowl using 5 changes of water, rubbing grains and letting them settle before pouring off water (if quinoa does not settle,drain in a large sieve after each rinsing).

  3. Cook quinoa in a 4- to 5-quart pot of boiling salted water 10 minutes. Drain in a large sieve and rinse under cold running water.

  4. Set sieve with quinoa over a saucepan containing 1½ inches boiling water (sieve should not touch water) and steam quinoa, covered with a kitchen towel and lid, until fluffy and dry, 10 to 12 minutes. Toss quinoa with curried yoghurt and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Serve warm or at room temperature.

* Quinoa is a cereal grain from Peru, which is closely related to the amaranth; quinoa is in the Goosefoot family, Chenopodiaceae.
