I find couscous to be a great ingredient that can be cooked in so many ways and used as a side dish or even as a main course
In this recipe, I added lemon and spices so it would go well together with Indian Chicken. But the base preparation of the couscous is the same whichever ingredients you decide to add to it.
Basically, you add uncooked couscous to a bowl or pan, add a knob of butter and season with salt and pepper. Then add hot water or hot broth, cover the recipient and let the couscous absorb the liquid. Stir it with a fork to loosen the couscous.
Then you just have to cook any other ingredients of your choice and add it to the couscous.
