Homemade coucous?

Springhaze2 | Dec 4, 2013 04:22 PM

A lot of chowhounds make their own pasta and noodles. Has anybody ever made homemade couscous?

I'm lucky, I grew up with a father who made the Hungarian tarhonya, also known as, "egg barley: or "pearl noodles", whenever we had a pot of broth/stock simmering from the carcass of a roasted chicken or turkey.

To me, making those noodles is second nature. Just take some flour and some eggs, a bit of salt and mix to the right texture, maybe a bit of water if needed. Grate by hand on a box grater and leave out to dry on kitchen towels.

I am wondering if anybody has a similar technique for making couscous? It is a pasta, it has been used by certain cultures for many years, what is the traditional method for making it from scratch??
