    I bought a bag of giant couscous when I was in the city last. I've not known what to do with it ever since. Could someone tell me how to prepare it? Is it the same way as you deal with regular couscous? TIA

    Couscous is not the same as maftoul. Not even the same taste or texture. Homemade maftoul, I like. I am not a fan of couscous.
    I have only made maftoul once.
    Usually a tomato sauce condiment is made and served over it.
    I took alot of short cuts. My techniques wasnt a true authentic one. In essence the maftoul should be steamed over a chicken broth.

    Thanks for clearing that up Fifi. I used the recipe on the ziyad website and it turned out quite nicely. You're right, not the same texture or taste at all. I only said 'Giant Couscous' because that's what I had heard it being referred to!
    I served it with Roast Chicken and Garlic sauce.
    I think I might add spinach to it next time.
