Cook's Notes

Garam masala is a fragrant Indian blend of spices that usually includes black pepper, cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, and coriander. As with regular couscous, Israeli couscous is a type of pasta made with semolina flour, but its grains, or pearls, are larger and chewier.

    Israeli couscous is nothing like dry, regular couscous. Your husband/you should give it a try. Really good and so easy. I add toasted pinenuts, a littel red pepper flakes, chicken broth.

    I made this recipe with bulgar instead of couscous. My husband won't eat couscous, but will eat bulgar wheat. The trick is not to let the bulgar get too mushy. I also could not find garam masala... we live in the nothwoods, I'm lucky to find boneless chicken :). Anyway, you can make a combination of the spices and work with them and is was very tasty.
