Cooking foods - Couscous
Before you start
For a given volume of dry couscous, use about 20% less volume of water.
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.
