Royal couscous

Royal couscous recipe

It’s been a long time since I wanted to cook a royal couscous, the arrival of my sister Corinne, who is surely the most competent in couscous in our family (she is even the queen of couscous). Allowed me to embark on this adventure, without any regret this couscous was super good, just spicy. Easy to make royal couscous, a bit long, but with a royal result, the chicken and merguez are cooked separately. A homemade couscous dumpling recipe, they are shaped in advance and cooked in the cooking juices just before serving. A very detailed recipe to allow you to make a homemade couscous. We also and especially take advantage of Leo’s birthday to make this dish, although it is not a traditional dish for this kind of events, anyway we had a great time …
