Need Help Cooking Pearl Couscous
I have seen pictures of pearl couscous. It looks delicious, these golden pearls of goodness. BUT, I can't seem to cook them. I've never had them outside of my kitchen, so I don't know, maybe this is how they are supposed to be.
The instructions are to pour 1 cup couscous into 1.25 cups of boiling water, put on the lid, lower heat and simmer for ten minutes. When I do this, it seems "raw" to me, still kinda crispy, and not at all what I'm expecting.
If I cook it longer, it just turns to mush.
Am I doing this wrong, or is it supposed to be chewy.
