  8. Hi,

    I tried cooking pulav with couscous. I didn't follow this recipe. Just a question to you as you seem to have mastered indian recipes with couscous. I poured 1 1/4 cup of boiling water with salt to couscous,stir it and cover with a cloth and lid on top of it. I let it sit for 12-15 mins.. There were lumps in the couscous.Any tips?
