Couscous groats are an exotic product for many, but in reality they are specially processed grains of wheat, rice, barley or millet. At first they made this cereal from semolina. The process was quite painstaking, and only women did it. Semolina was mixed with a little flour and water. Then, everything was thoroughly mixed to form small grains. After that, it was necessary to add more water and flour, and only then grains formed, which were eventually dried to obtain the final product. The original product almost immediately became popular in many parts of the world.
