Couscous

Happy new month guys! Welcome to February, it’s going to be awesome! So we’re starting the month on a yummy note, quite literally and you’ll see why inna bit! Couscous is one meal I’ve been itching to try out for a long time now, and with this post, I just might! For those who don’t know, couscous is a dish that originates from the eastern and northern part of Africa and is eating as a staple dish across these parts. It looks like rice but it’s actually made from semolina. In today’s post, our guest blogger Aisha of Aishazkitchen , takes us through a very easy and rather interesting method of preparing the Nigerian stir fry couscous accompanied with grilled chicken. Yum!
