Images of Arabia. Of desert sands and cooking smells that waft out of the narrow streets of old Casablanca. Moroccan Spices brown in the pan. We quickly add couscous and boiling water. A handful of dried currents completes the mixture. Truly delicious and a great alternative to rice or potatoes.

Ingredients
  1. 500g Instant Couscous
  2. 500ml Boiling water
  3. Pinch of Salt and Pepper
  4. 1 cup Currents
  5. 1/2 tsp. Curry Powder
  6. 4 tbsp. Moroccan Spice or make it using the recipe below-
Moroccan Spice (Recipe from Ras-El-Hanout)
  1. 1 tsp. ground cumin
  2. 1 tsp. salt
  3. 1 tsp. ground ginger
  4. 3/4 tsp. black pepper
  5. 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
  6. 1/2 tsp. cayenne
  7. 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
  8. 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
Garnish
  1. 1 bunch parsley, roughly chopped
Instructions
  1. 1. To make Moroccan Spice, mix all ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.
  2. 2. Turn the kettle on.
  3. 3. In a large measuring jar or bowl, mix the couscous, salt and pepper, currents, curry powder and Moroccan spice together until well combined. Make sure all the ingredients are mixed evenly, otherwise you will get clumps of spice when the couscous is cooked.
  4. 4. Pour the boiling water on top of the couscous mixture and allow couscous to soak up the water for 5 minutes. Do not stir.
  5. 5. Using a fork, fluff up the couscous and transfer onto a serving plate. Garnish with parsley and enjoy!
