Veg Couscous Pulao

Couscous is a traditional middle eastern grain made from semolina. Couscous doesn’t have its own flavor however it goes very well as a base for vegetables, chicken and, meat dishes. The grain is also used in salad recipes along with herbs like coriander, basil, parsley and mint. One can eat this as a side with chicken or vegetable stew. I have given a little twist to the recipe by adding some spices to make it a little tangy and tasteful. This recipe is a vegetarian recipe and you can use your favorite vegetables as well. The dish is very nutritious and can be prepared in short time.
