I’m a member of a VERY active food group on Facebook called “So You Think You Can Cook?” and once in a while a picture or recipe will capture my imagination, this recipe from K’s Cuisine caught my attention.
I can cook jollof rice with the best of them but sometimes I try new ways of preparing it to make it a little more interesting as contrary to popular belief it is cooked differently across West Africa. I usually make my Jollof rice in the “party style” but this native style was new to me and I was excited to try it at home, I have had it at events but never homemade.
Here’s a picture of the end result, I didn’t include all the fish, although I did include the dried crayfish. I was having a “Meatless Monday” so baked my plantain to be even healthier and had Brussels sprouts instead of meat (I love sprouts so I was in heaven).
I have to give this recipe a BIG THUMBS up! It was delicious, and made a change from the usual style of jollof that I’m used to. I adapted the recipe to suit my taste, but that’s because I am a confident cook, if this is your first time try your best to follow the recipe as closely as possible.
