Today I present you a recipe which was requested from a faithful subscriber, couscous with the head
of sheep, I admit that it is the first time that
I prepared the couscous with the head of sheep,
but surely it will not be the last time.
Today I am going to present you a traditional Moroccan dish "Couscous Teffaya", teffaya means the sauce made with onion
which accompanies the dish.
We have in Morocco a lot of variety of couscous dishes, Couscous made with meat and vegetable (see my recipe), Couscous with fish, Couscous with milk, Couscous sweet with dried
fruit and honey...
We eat Couscous in Morocco usually on Fridays ( the holy day for muslims), when the members from the family come back from
mosque. On this day you can smell Couscous in the air everywhere.
Couscous is cooked in a special pot (a couscous steamer), which
has two components: a top-perforated deep pan, which contains
the grain, and a bottom pot containing the stew which the pan
rests on .
Couscous is moistened with water before cooking and then it is placed in the pan. Every tweenty minutes the couscous is taken
out of the pan to add oil or butter and to work it by hand.
Couscous is ready when the granules are cooked, separated, soft, and moist.
In order to change a little bit from stuffed bread recipes I've been
posting (I have more stuffed bread recipes, do not worry), I chose
this typical Moroccan recipe, a stuffed Cornish hen with couscous,
spiced with fresh ginger and arabic gum.
It is a recipe taken from the book of Rachida Amhaouch,
I added some personal touches.
I invite you to watch the video.
Here is the couscous with chicken prepared by my dear mother during my holidays in Morocco.
Usually when I prepare my couscous whatever with chicken or with meat, I steam the couscous 3 times, but my mother said that twice is sufficient.
I invite you to watch the video to see my mother's version of couscous.
