ABOUT Couscous Salad with Indian Tadka RECIPE

Couscous as a salad is very commonly used in Mediterranean cuisine. Here I combined it with some assorted Bell Peppers and gave it an Indian tempering for an entirely different flavour. This healthy, nutritious and fat free salad serves as a complete balanced meal in itself as it is very filling. So it is very good for the elderly people as it contains a good dose of vitamins, calcium, riboflavin, etc.
