Your best pot has some meat stock in it. To enrich the flavour of the finished dish, if you’re parboiling your rice, do it in stock and enjoy the best Jollof Rice and other Jollof recipes.
Nigerian Fried Rice
The difference between Nigerian-style fried rice and Chinese is that the Naija version is cooked in/ with stock and the Chinese is ‘fried’. The stock contributes to the colour and flavour in your best pot.Other rice dishes also benefit. My friend L, makes this stunning pot of sweet pepper rice that sees rice cooked in stock and then stir-fried with hot, yellow pepper and onions. It is the best. Ever.
Nigerian Chicken Curry
Popular on Sundays, this ‘curry’ sauce has chicken stock at its base. It is thickened with flour or corn starch and chock full of chicken, carrots, Irish potatoes and more, perfect served with white rice.
Sauces, like GizDodo or Snail Sauce
Add some stock, vegetables and meat if you like to a pot, along with herbs and spices for a warming, delicious soup that’s great for dunking bread.
