I tried this recipe since I had curry and wanted a healthier couscous dish to make, and was fairly happy with the results after following these instructions.
My results may be a tad different cause I didn't have chicken stock so I used broth, and in lieu of cilantro I at first just omitted it. I also didn't have raisins or almonds so as such, my first dish was fairly bland. Not at all the fault of the recipe though, since so many things were missing.
Since I made a huge amount of this bland couscous, I tried to help my next serving the next day by adding something to combat the blandness. Right now I'm eating a bowl of it, with a liberal helping of dehydrated parsley, and I must say even though I'm still missing raisins and almonds, the flavour has been dramatically helped.
Overall I think this is a great way to make couscous, but as a word of warning, make sure you have cilantro or parsley on hand or you're in for a fairly bland meal.
On a side note I also added a can of chick peas when I added the stock/broth to the couscous, because I wanted to eat this sort of as its own meal. I don't think it alters the flavour much though, just makes it more hearty.
