Couscous is a staple of North African cuisine and is a dish of steamed balls of semolina usually served with stew on top. Traditional couscous is prepared with semolina, but in recent days, it is prepared with wheat and barley. Coarsely ground wheat is moistened, rolled into small balls and dusted off with wheat flour.
Couscous is not only meant for pilaf or to be served with stew, but it can be used as a substitute for rice to cut down calories. Try this masala couscous pulao – Israeli couscous cooked with vegetables and Indian masalas. Then you will never think of considering rice for pulao.
Serve Masala Couscous Pulao with Beetroot Raita, Lauki Raita or any other raita of your choice. A roasted papad will add a crunch to this meal.
