How to make Couscous upma – Upma recipes- Recipes with coucous

     I have seen so many recipes with couscous in the net,but never bookmarked any.But,I always wanted to try it.When shopping , I found a packet and immediately bought it. Later I never found the time for it and kept searching for some easy recipes to use up the packet.

     One day, in the foodgawker , I saw a recipe of making couscous at home. I was quite interested in the post. I realised it wasn’t very easy to make at home. But generally it was semolina which is cooked by steaming.

     So then, I decided to make the popular upma with it. I made it for dinner as we usually try to keep our dinner light. I served it with come gothsu. It was quite delicious.
