When I am traveling , so I always try to get behind the scenes in the kitchen in the country that I visit. Immigrants and guests visiting the center will always be questioned by me about their food. Oh how much we can learn from each other , only one dares question. You are never stupid from too much knowledge. And everyone wants to share what they can.
This with cous cous … here in europe so turned just hot water over cous cousen and so may it stand for a while . Tell that to the one from North Africa and they get something strange in her eyes.
Here I’ll show how to make cous cous in the way that is original from the beginning and that ‘s the right thing according to those which are native with cous cous . Everyone has not a real cous cous boiler, including me , but it can be done anyway. Often , I have something else to be cooked as I use the steam. And almost every home in Northafrica serves cous cous every Friday dinner.
Here are pictures , step by step how to make it real.
What you need is :
1 glass cous cous ( about 250 ml )
1 damp cotton cloth
1 container of water
0.5 tsp salt
Add cous cousen in the damp cotton cloth and fold it up and place it in the strainer. Boil water in pan. However, should the water level does not reach up to the screen ! Cover the strainer with a lid. And let it be so over the steam for about 2-3 hours. Stir now and then and shake the cloth sometimes ,
