ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Couscous is a type of food that is popular in many parts of the world. It looks like small balls of pasta. But it's not really pasta, it's made from tiny pieces of semolina flour, which is ground up durum wheat. The semolina flour is mixed with water and then steamed to make the couscous. When it's done, it looks like grains of yellow rice. It can be served as a side dish, or with vegetables and meat. It's also delicious when mixed with other ingredients like fruits, nuts, and spices.
