Rinse the Queens Quinoa under cold running water to remove any bitterness. Drain well.
In a large saucepan, add the rinsed quinoa and 2 cups of milk. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked and the mixture thickens.
Stir in the sugar and remaining 2 cups of milk. Add the chopped nuts, raisins, cardamom powder, and saffron strands (if using). Continue to simmer for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the kheer thickens to your desired consistency.
Remove from heat and let the kheer cool slightly. Serve warm or chilled, garnished with additional nuts if desired.
