Or buy one specially made for approx £20 from any good arabic retailer. (Pic1).
Then my recipe consists of-
a pack of cous cous
Harissa (tunisian red pepper purée)
Eggs (to be hard boiled)
Fish (ie cod, haddock, mackerel)
Skin the potatoes, carrots & pumpkin and chop. Also chop the yellow courgette. Leave aside
You want to chop the onion and garlic and fry in the olive oil for a few minutes.
Then add some salt, tomato purée and Harissa. And stir
Add water till half the pot is full
Drop in some cumin and coriander spice and stir
Drop all the veg in. Bring to the boil
Empty the cous cous into a bowl and mix water in until soft
Put into the ‘siv’ pot. And place on top of the stew with a lid.
The cous cous will steam. Keep a check as it will slightly dry out so you sprinkle water On To it as you go.
You can also steam the fish with the cous cous but it would take quite a long time (so stick it in the oven on 200c for 25 mins instead).
Meanwhile boil a few eggs for a good five minutes then drain, peel shells, rinse and leave aside.
You may want to add a pinch of salt and cumin to the eggs (a little tip to improve the taste if your not an egg lover).
Put the chickpeas and raisins in a pot or bowl and mix together
After approx 50 minutes…
When the Markah (stew) is thickened, the veg is softened..
Take the cous cous pot off and empty into a big bowl..take the stew off the heat also
So, when the eggs are done, the fish is done and the markah (stew) is done….
