You will need:

* Serves: 4

* Preparation Time: 5 minutes

* Cooking Time: 50 minutes


Pour the water into a steamer and bring it to a boil.

In the bowl, very gently mix the semolina, salt and flour with 250ml of water.

When it is mixed thoroughly pass the mixture through the tamis or sieve.

Place it in the steamer for half an hour.

Remove the steamed semolina. Place it into another bowl and break it up with a fork to make it fluffy.

Add the oil and about 500ml of water. This should be enough to give a wet texture to the mixture, if necessary, add more water until the required texture is gained. Mix well and let it rest for 10 minutes.

Return the semolina to the steamer for another 20 minutes to finish cooking it.

Serve hot as a delightful accompaniment to several Moroccan and Middle Eastern dishes. Couscous can be made in advance, so if you prefer, just reheat it in the steamer the next day for an enjoyable compliment to your meal.
