1 1/2 cups
ground black pepper
extra-virgin olive oil
slivered almonds, toasted
this is a simple, delicious recipe. However, if you have salt in your chicken broth already, i would not add any more salt at all. With the 2tsp of salt PLUS the salt in my chicken broth, the dish was much too salty. I will not add the 2tsp of salt next time.
I liked this but it had mixed reviews from my family. I think next time I would use low sodium broth and leave out the salt...I only used 1/2 tsp and it was too much.
This recipe deserves more than five stars for absolute brilliance--I would've never thought to put curry in couscous! My family was very skeptical as I was making this but we ended up with no leftovers. As per other reviewers, I added some fresh garlic, cumin, and a bag of frozen veggies. Will be making again soon.
This is a second review -
OK - made this again, and even better! For a double recipe, I took 12 wings and browned them on both sides. Add a chopped onion, bell pepper, carrots - saute till tender. Mix 2T curry, 1t turmeric, 1t cumin, 1t garlic, 1t onion powder, 1t oregano, 1/2t red pepper, 1/2t allspice, 1/2t cloves and mix into 2C hot water. Pour into skillet, cover, and simmer until chicken is done, turning occasionally. Toss in raisins, 2 cups water and 1 1/2C couscous. Cook until done!! WOW!
This couscous has already become a weekly treat in our house! We use more curry and more raisins just because we love it that way. Made a triple batch of it for a graduation open house and had people just going nuts over it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Wonderful side dish! Very easy to prepar and it's a nice change from potatoes or rice. I did cut back on the salt a bit and left out the cilantro as my husband isn't a huge fan. Overall, very tasty!
This was the easiest, most delicious side I have ever made! I felt like I was eating at an Indian restaurant! I mixed chicken in the couscous with some peas, it was amazing. I really like this dish too because, like at the restaurant, you can make it as mild or as spicy as you want by adding red pepper flakes.
This is my first time cooking couscous, I never bother before because I really thought it was difficult, hehehe, silly me.
But this was easy!!!! and it was really good, besides the cilantro and almonds at the end I also added some chopped green onions and chopped pecans, my boyfriend loved it, I'll be making this more often.
