Couscous was traditionally the staple food in North African countries, but has now become very popular in America and Asian countries too, due to its high nutrient value.

It is made from durum wheat and traditionally served with meat or vegetable stew, says Rediff reader Lopamudra Tripathy who currently lives in Tokyo, Japan.

"As my husband prefers to take salad as dinner at least three times a week, I have found couscous really helpful in planning a good healthy and quick dinner," adds Tripathy.
