I think the confusion is that the word "cous cous" is often applied
both to the grain and to whole dish including the accompanying meat or
vegetable stew. The stew does indeed usually contain chick peas -
someone's posted a recipe at message 13999, but there are many
variations on the theme, including fish cous cous.
We normally make a stew from lamb and chicken in equal parts,
chick peas, carrot, onion (no or very little garlic), with broad beans
and sliced zucchini added towards the end of the cooking time. Spiced
with cumin and coriander, and with a few raisins and/or dried apricots
for variation. Steam the cous cous grain and serve with the stew.
Serve a little harissa ( a fiery chilli-based paste) separately.
