Tabbouleh Salad

I have always been wondering what is this couscous thingy till I come across it during a cooking series, Khana Khazana from the Zee Tv. So here I'm trying it out in my own ways. As you can see this pix, it looks soggy coz I have added more lemon juice in it. So why wait, try it out..

Tabbouleh Salad

Ingredients: -
1 cup dry couscous (I use San Remo brand)
1-2 medium tomatoes, seeded & diced
handful fresh coriander, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper

Methods: -

Add the dry couscous to 1.5 cup of boiling water. Turn to low heat and cover for about 3-5 minutes. Couscous is ready when the water has evaporated and the couscous is tender (if it's crunchy, it's not done). Remove from heat and fluff it around with a fork. Set aside and cool.

When couscous is completely cooled, add tomatoes, coriander & lemon juice.Mix well, removing any clumps in the couscous.

Dizzle olive oil and season with salt & pepper to your individual preferences.

Serve with your fav baked chicken.

Note: You can subtitute the lemon juice with abt 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar for the kick taste & chopped onion for the crunchy taste.

Happy Trying !!! :)
