Couscous recipe, How to cook couscous

Couscous is a granular semolina that resemble tiny beads is a staple food of Northern Africa. It is usually accompanied with any curry or gravy spooned on the top. Couscous is more easy and quick to prepare than any pasta as it takes just 5 minutes to cook. Sounds interesting right? I usually pick instant couscous from the store and pair it with chicken curry or make different preparations as it tastes bland on its own. It picks up its flavor with whatever you accompany as side dish or cook it with. This recipe can be prepared in 5 minutes and can be relished with any curry. For this recipe I have used whole wheat couscous from trader joe’s. So let’s get to that!
