Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil, then add the quinoa. Simmer for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain well and spread in a thin layer on a tray to cool.
Heat the oil in a deep-sided saucepan to 150°C (302°F). Deep-fry the quinoa until crisp. Drain in a metal sieve placed over a bowl. Spread the crisp quinoa on a tray lined with paper towel to remove as much oil as possible. Store in an airtight container until needed.
