      Excellent excellent dish! One of the best couscous dishes on RecipeZaar (in my humble opinion) - and we LOVE couscous and have tried MANY variations :) We served this with Indian Butter Chicken, allowing each person to choose either the butternut sauce or the butter sauce. Otherwise it was served with a slotted spoon seperate from the couscous. Thanks for posting!
