The Lentils Couscous is a traditional Fulani dish that I transformed. Usually it is cooked with pearl millet, but I wanted to try a different type of cereal and I liked it so much that I now cook it using barley couscous more often. For my choice of pulses, lentils are a personal favorite and any excuse is good to add them to a meal!
100gr barley couscous
Chop the garlic, the onions and the tomatoes, then sauté the mix in a teaspoon of vegetable oil with salt and pepper.
In the meantime boil some water with a little salt in which you will add the lentils (pour the water until it just covers the lentils) and let rest. If you’d like extra spice, add a hot pepper.
Happily mix the two preparations!
The Lentils Couscous is a side dish which can be eaten with your choice of main, I suggest ribs!
