DIRECTIONS

  • Pour the couscous into a large bowl, add the salt & oil. Sprinkle 1/2 cup water over & mix with hands. When water is absorbed, transfer to the couscousier or steamer.
  • Steam for 15 minutes. Tip couscous into a large bowl & 'open' by sprinkling a little cold water over the couscous & rubbing between your hands - use no more than 1/4 cup.
  • Return to the couscousier & steam again for 15 minutes. Repeat the previous step.
  • Whilst the couscous is steaming for the final time, boil the peas & broad beans in a pan of salted water until tender. Finely chop the garlic & add to the pan. Cook for a further minute then drain carefully.
  • Do this a third time then pour the couscous into a very large bowl. Open again using a little water, then rib in the margarine & the ghee. Add the peas, broad beans & garlic to the couscous & mix well. Taste & add more salt if desired.
