The Nigerian jollof rice is a very popular food that is prepared and served at parties. It is quite easy to prepare if you follow the simple steps. You should try in a small quantity first.
· 3 cigar cup/750g long grain parboiled rice
1. Pour the chicken stock and the tomato stew into a sizeable pot and leave to boil.
2. Add the drained parboiled rice, curry powder, salt and pepper to taste. The water level should be the same level of the rice. This is to ensure that all the water dries up by the time the rice is cooked.
3. Cover the pot and leave to cook on low to medium heat. This way the rice does not burn before the water dries up.
Taste to confirm. If the rice is not done before the water dries up, add more water and reduce the heat to prevent it from burning. Keep cooking till it’s done.
Serve with plantain and salad.
