    Kerala Recipes - Pearl Couscous with Chicken

    <p><strong>Pearl Couscous/Israeli Couscous</strong> is a <strong></strong><strong>Toasted Wheat Pasta</strong> in the form of granules. It is bigger than the <strong>Couscous Grains</strong> which were used in <a href="http://recipes.malayali.me/menu/easy-recipes/couscous-with-vegetables"><strong>this recipe</strong></a>. Pearl Couscous has a longer cooking time compared to Couscous Grains. Since it is bigger in size and retains its firmness after cooking, it can be substituted for Rice in recipes. I prepared Pearl Couscous similar to a Pulav using home-grown Tomatoes & Bell Peppers and threw in pieces of Cooked Chicken Breasts.</p>
