For the love of jollof rice and in honour of world jollof rice day, I have decided to share with you all my different variations of jollof rice over time.
Jollof rice is a staple in many West African homes and in the past, it was something to look forward to on Sundays. It was labelled “Sunday Rice” as this is what we all ate (well most people) in our homes on Sundays. I always looked forward to eating jollof on Sundays or at parties.
These days, jollof rice is eaten on any day of the week lol.
- The first picture is a plate of jollof rice served with some spicy crispy drumsticks and grilled plantains.
2) The second is jollof rice made with jasmine rice and not the traditional long grain rice as pictured above. This was served with some spicy grilled hen.
3) The third picture is coconut jollof rice. Although not the traditional way of making jollof, coconut jollof is also very tasty. This was served with some spicy goat meat and plantain.
4) The fourth is smokey jollof rice served with some spicy crispy wing caesar salad. All these pictures have been featured on my blog in the past, so the recipes can easily be found.
In my opinion, Nigerian jollof rice is the best version of jollof in West Africa (YES, I am bias) lol. World Jollof rice day is always a big deal, and I cannot wait to see the social media frenzy.
Let the jollof wars begin.
