If you’ve been around Nigerians before, they are a rambunctious bunch. From soccer to music to Nollywood movies (not be confused with Hollywood or Bollywood)…Nigerians have no chill. Everything is worth raising their voice, marching to the streets or dancing for. But one thing you can’t take away from them is the depth of soul from which they prepare their meals from.
Jollof Rice – World’s Greatest Rice Dish?
One of the foods that gets high praise from people all over the world is a rice dish called Jollof Rice. This dish among Nigerians is a staple delicacy that is sought after especially at social gatherings. If you’ve been around a Nigerian long enough and have had the privilege of being invited to a gathering, you’ve likely had it or been offered it. It’s also often served with sweet plantains and a meat – chicken or goat sometimes and is usually spicy.
This rice dish, for those of you from the Latin or Caribbean regions of the world, can compete with the best Arroz con Pollo or Rice and Peas plates you’ve ever tasted. And so with that, I want to share with you a video that I’d come across recently that captures and settles the debate on why Jollof Rice might be the hands-down the best rice dish out there. It also explains why I don’t cook for non-Nigerians anymore.
