Easy Curry Couscous

If you have never eaten couscous, it is a traditional North African dish of semolina which is cooked streamed and traditionally served with a meat or vegetable stew spooned over it. In that part of the world it is a substitute for rice.

Here is one of my favorite ways to prepare and eat couscous.
