Kerryann's Turkish-Style Couscous
recipe is a take on what Jamie Oliver shared and to quote him " This
super-simple couscous recipe is almost a salad – zingy, lightly spiced
and brilliant with fish and chicken " . I saw Nishant's post and
remembered I used to make this one so I looked up the recipe and here is
my version of this awesome salad / side.
1 Measuring Cup Couscous.
1 Teaspoon Freshly Roasted & Ground Cumin/Jeera.
1 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika - I took 2 whole dried red chilies , lightly burnt them and cut them fine.Gave the smokey flavor. 4 Tablespoons red onion diced.
2 Tablespoons Yellow Bell Peppers.
4 Tablespoons Chopped Red Bell Pepper.
4 Tablespoons Corn Kernels.
2 ripe tomatoes - I used Cherry Tomatoes as I had them in the fridge - each cut into four.
2 Tablespoons of fresh mint. 6 Tablespoons of fresh coriander 8 Tablespoons of fresh flat-leaf parsley.
1 Teaspoon extra virgin olive oil.
Juice From One Lemon.
couscous , cumin , salt , smoked chopped chilies , peppers , corn
together in a bowl. Pour boiling hot water into the bowl covering
couscous 1 " above. Stir and cover the bowl to retain the heat . Don't
disturb it for 15 minutes.
add in onions , lemon juice , oil , mint , and most of the tomatoes ,
coriander and parsley , mix gently with a fork , that will fluff
couscous up . Adjust flavors , garnish with balance parsley , coriander
and tomatoes , serve chilled or at room temperature.
