Cous cous with seven vegetables

2 quarteder onions
4 quartered tomatoes
1 finely sliced red chili
1 pack fresh coriander (cilantro)
1 pack fresh flat leaved parsley
2 cinnamon sticks
2 tsp salt
1 tsp each of ground black pepper, ginger, turmeric
1/4 tsp saffron threads
8 small halved carrots
4 medium quartered turnips
450g (1lb) cubed butternut squash
4 medium halved courgettes(zucchini)
400g can chick peas drained
75g (3oz) raisins (optional)
500g pack couscous

In a large pan place onions, tomatoes, chili, half the pack of cilantro 
and parsley add the spices and approx half pint water.Cover and simmer 
for 45 mins.Keep checking as to amount of liquid(because I haven't tried 
this version and the original used 5 pints to make a broth from the 
chicken I can't be more helpful here I'm afraid - just keep an eye on it 
and add more water if you think necessary)
Add carrots and turnips cover and simmer for 15mins then add squash, 
zucchini,chick peas and raisins and simmer for a further 15mins again 
checking on liquid if too runny for you cook uncovered to reduce.
Serve over couscous.
