Couscous (Arabic: كُسْكُس‎ kuskus) is a Maghrebi dish of small (about 3 millimetres (0.12 in) diameter) steamed balls of crushed durum wheat semolina[2] that is traditionally served with a stew spooned on top. Pearl millet and sorghum especially in the Sahel and other cereals can be cooked in a similar way and the resulting dishes are also sometimes called couscous.[3]:18[4]
Couscous is a staple food throughout the North African cuisines of Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Mauritania, Libya, and Egypt.[5][6]:250 In Western supermarkets, it is sometimes sold in instant form with a flavour packet, and may be served as a side or on its own as a main dish.
