Morrocan couscous is two parts water to one part couscous, what is the ratio for Israeli Couscous? The bag I bought only has the water for using the whole bag at once which is more than I will eat.

I don't fully understand the problem. If your bag of dry grain is labeled with the amount of water required for the whole bag, can't you just divide amount of water by the weight (or volume) of the bag? Olin Lathrop‭ 25 days ago

You can use a ratio of 1:1 by volume if you minimize evaporation with a lid; 1 couscous to 1.15 or 1.25 water if there will be more evaporation or you prefer it a little mushy; or you can use a general pasta method and bring a large amount of water to the boil, dump in the couscous and strain it out when cooked.
