Couscous belongs to Semolina variety and it is widely used in African, Middle East cuisine. It takes very less time to get cooked and I have used them in Salads,made vegetable upma too. Last week yet again prepared a SouthIndian dish using Couscous. First time tried preparing pongal using couscous and they turned out beautifully. I used masoor dal instead of the usual moong dal. Served them with sambar and coconut chutney.
