Couscous

Couscous is a Morrocon staple made from semolina. What we get in the market here is American Couscous which gets ready in 5 minutes whereas the Morrocon Couscous takes much longer to cook. 

I have added Sumac which is a Lebanese condiment. It should be available in Gourmet stores.  It's completely optional. 

























Ingredients   Serves 2
Couscous.                   100gms
Water                         110 ml.

Pomegranate              2 tbsp 
Coriander                  1 tbsp chopped
Mint                          1 tbsp chopped 

Method : 
  1. Take couscous in a deep bowl.
  2. Pour boiling water over it. Cover the bowl with a cling film for 5 minutes.
