About Couscous with Carrots:

Couscous is used for salads in Turkish cuisine. We may consider it as a kind of pasta or vermicelli and its pilaf is also very yummy especially when cooked with some vegetables like carrot, sweet corn etc. Children will love this soft couscous pilaf. You may use other vegetables instead of carrot or may not use any of them as always.
