This recipe originated in South India where it was called "Milagu Thanni" or "Pepper Water" in Tamil. The British liked its spicy quality but wanted it to be heartier, so Indian cooks began to add chicken, or lamb to it. I am presenting the vegetarian version, since I don't cook meat.
Cous Cous originated in North African countries such as Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia. It is an inexpensive dish made from semolina, similar to rice, pasta and bread. Cooked carrots, zucchini, onions with chickpeas and raisins are some foods usually served on top of a Cous Cous platter. In Morocco, many walls are painted in shades of blue and green contrasting with white tiles. For this image I used a stencil, pen and ink and watercolor. The woman’s hand in the illustration holds some grains of Cous Cous as a reminder that eating with one's fingers is a custom throughout the world.
