Sweet Corn Omelette Cous Cous Salad

My younger brother is now in Brazil on his company's trip. Any idea what are the best things you can get from there? I have already asked him to look out for some spices !!!! Brazil actually reminds me of so many fabulous South America cuisines and also reminds me of my favourite TV commercial called 'Yo Soy Betty La Fea' ! While waiting patiently for the arrival of my spices (if he gets them !), I am trying something new here. My first attempt making a cous cous dish out of this tiny grains. Maybe it's not new to most of you but this is definitely my first time. I never know cous cous  is so easy to handle and prepare. This tiny grains will be ready in just 15-20 minutes in boiling water. Cous cous is actually came from semolina. It's a very nutritious food and it's also a good substitution for white rice.

Ingredients :
1 cup  cous cous (instant)
3 cups  boiling water
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup  sweet corn
1  onion, diced
1/2 tspn  crashed black peppercorn
salt & pepper to taste
1 tomato,  diced
1 green pear, diced
handful of cilantro, finely chopped
* parmesan cheese powder

Method :
(1) soak cous cous into boiling for about 20 mins, then drain & set aside.
(2) combine beaten egg, corn, black peppercorn and salt & pepper together.
(3) preheat a frying pan with just enough oil, saute onion till fragrant and then pour in egg mixture and let to cook till brown.
(4) once it's ready, off the heat then stir in drained cous cous, tomato, pear & cilantro and mix well.
(5) serve with parmesan cheese.

I love this...my kids love this......NOT their dad ! Well, have I ever mentioned he is a 'kampung boy'! haha..... Shhhhh....... Poor man, he's going to miss so many good & delicious food that I'm making. Honestly, don't even think of changing his mind !  I wonder what would happened one day if the world has run out of rice !!!! Can you imagine that ?
