Chef Nado's Note:
Always perfect tasting and easy to prepare. I tried several couscous recipes but was never happy with the ending result given the lack of flavor but now, I have customized my very own and I want to share it with you. Do not be intimidated by all the ingredients. I promise you it's easy! The fragrant aroma will definitely get you hungry even while cooking.
