couscous (without cooking)

Hello,

I'm trying it very difficult to find couscous from the type which can be prepared in 5 minutes with hot water only (sorry I don't know if it has a special name).

Does anybody know where to find this or how it is called in Turkey?

Thanks,

It is the fine bulgur wheat that I use as a cous cous substitute, usually says it on the packet, coarse or fine.

Re: couscous (without cooking)

That is weird, I only just learned the other day that couscous is not a grain but pasta. I can't believe all those years that I was convinced it was a grain.

I also thought it was a grain until a year or so back when I saw it being made on TV.

I must be a slow learner, I only saw the video last week and it completely floored me.
