MIX VEGGIE COUSCOUS SALAD

Mix Veggie Couscous Salad is nutritious as well as delicious too! A simple and quick dish with healthy veggies and simple flavours, this is a great option for a light meal.

Couscous is very nutritious and is made from semolina. It has a number of health benefits and is a good low calorie option when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle. The added veggies up the overall nutrition quotient!

Nowadays instant couscous is available in most supermarkets and can be cooked in literally 5 minutes. The procedure for the same and water to be used is mentioned on the pack itself. Still, sometimes it may happen that some more hot water than what has been mentioned might be required to get a fluffy couscous.

The Adobado Sauce I have used here has a sort of barbecue + sweet chilli sauce type flavour with a slight spiciness. Hence I have mentioned the other sauces to be used to get the desired flavour.

From a person who could cook very few dishes..... I have converted myself to a person who now can cook varied dishes! I like perfection in all my work. Reading a lot of recipes, watching different famous chefs' cooking shows on television and observing their methods, techniques and tips very closely and studiously ....is what has made me a very good cook today. Though there are numerous recipes I haven't tried my hand at..... there are many other in which I have gained exerpertise only by trial and error! I still watch all interesting cookery shows on TV to gain more knowledge on cooking techniques of other cultures from here and abroad!! Nowadays, I have started adding healthy twists to my dishes as and when I can without compromising on their original taste.
