The Nigerian rice recipe discussed here is the classic Nigerian Jollof Rice prepared at parties. This is the most popular Nigerian rice recipe. This is why you will always see it in parties.
What You’ll Need
- 3 cigar cups | 750g long grain parboiled rice
- Kaptain Ready Stews
- Chicken (whole chicken, drumsticks or chicken breast) or Beef
- Pepper and salt (to taste)
- 2 medium onions
- 3 Knorr cubes
- 2 teaspoons thyme
- 2 teaspoons curry powder (Nigerian curry powder)
How To Make It
Pour the chicken stock and the tomato stew into a sizeable pot and leave to boil. Add the drained parboiled rice, curry powder, salt, and pepper to taste. The water level should be at the same level as the rice. This is to ensure that all the water dries up by the time the rice is cooked. Cover the pot and leave to cook on low to medium heat. This way the rice does not burn before the water dries up.
