    It would make more sense not to use the microwave. So, my advice would be:
    Step 1. Boil the correct amount of water (as per the instructions on the pack) and pour this over the cous cous. Step 2. Wait about five minutes until the water has been absorbed. Step 3. Fluff up the cous cous with a fork. Step 4. Follow the rest of the instructions.
