ive never cooked quinoa but have eaten it. how do u cook it?

1 of Quinoa to 2 of water then simmer til soft usually about 20min. Soaking for a while helps. Much like cooking rice, though if you overcook it tends to turn porridgy so keep an eye on it. Its surprisingly easy.

Edit to add there are instructions on the packet, and its fairly cheap.

I use it the same way as rice or couscous - often eat it cold as a salad - not sure how it woild go in a fritter or pancake really as thats not something I've considered using it for really

If it is cooked properly, is it still gritty? Have eaten it in a cafe and it was like eating coarse sand - yuk. It's not supposed to be like that, is it?

No its not but it needs plenty of seasoning

I usually cook mine in the rice cooker exactly the same as white rice. the coloured one needs a bit more water. once cooked you can tosse through a roast vege salad or I add mine to and omelete. I also added it to rice paper wrappers in with the veges. I think you can use it pretty much the same as rice. You can also flavour it with herbs and spice to taste.
