Couscous really works so well with dried fruit - a lovely dish!

thanks haalo!
You are so right, this recipe could easily be changed to use other dried fruits.

hey gabriella,
thanks for visiting my blog.
Don't know what to say about the genius bit, but yeah, the parathas were easy to make. saffron hut and shammi also have step- by -step instructions on making them . Maybe you should give them a look and then try. Am sure you'll have fun.

loved this recipe of yours. I've recently started using cous cous and I have some pine nuts sitting in the cupboard. I guess time for it to come out .
