Bought the packed couscous from Cold Storage

The couscous was very savoury, can be eaten on its own or with meat/vegetables of your choice

Couscous is a coarsely ground semolina pasta. The grain is a staple in many North African countries. Over the last decade, it's cropped up on other parts of the world menu too. So when I saw Couscous in Cold Storage while doing my grocery shopping, I was very excited and decided to buy one pack. The preparation was very easy with all the directions stated at the pack. I had added extra garlic and onion during the preparation to enhance the flavour and aroma.


30 g butter
1 onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup couscous
2 cups water


  1. Heat butter in sauce pan (which has a lid).
  2. Add chopped onions, stir and allow to cook until soft.
  3. Stir in minced garlic.
  4. Add couscous and stir.
  5. Add in water and bring to boil. Remove from the heat.
  6. Cover and leave to stand for 5 minutes.
  7. Return to the heat for 1-2 minutes. Stirring with a fork to fluff up the grains, until piping hot.
