Curried Vegetable Couscous Dish


Confused about couscous also known as kuskus, the dish is a primary staple throughout North Africa


Couscous is both a name for wheat-grain semolina, appearing in many supermarkets today as simply couscous, and for a spicy chicken-vegetable stew served with cooked semolina that is popular throughout North Africa.

Traditional couscous requires considerable preparation time and is usually steamed and fluffed to separate the couscous granules. In many places, a more-processed, quick-cook couscous is available and is particularly valued for its short preparation time. Couscous is traditionally served under a meat or vegetable stew. It can also be eaten alone, flavored or plain, warm or cold, as a dessert or a side dish.
