Cooking foods - Couscous

Before you start

For a given volume of dry couscous, use about 20% less volume of water.

Method

Bring the water to a rolling boil. Add a pinch of salt and a few drops of oil.

Remove from heat and slowly pour in the couscous while stirring gently.

Cover for 2 min, until the couscous has swelled and all the water is absorbed. Add a little more water if the couscous looks too dry. 1-2 pats of butter can also be added, if you wish.

Serve.
