A traditional North African dish comprising grains of semolina formed into tiny pellets coated with fine wheat flour, usually steamed (traditionally in a couscoussier over the main dish) and served as an accompaniment. "Instant" versions have cut down the performance but seriously undermined the end flavour.

In Southern Brazil, a similar product is called 'cuscuz paulista', but this is in fact made from tapioca. See our Recipe Section
