Right now i am wondering how this happened - how I could forget about rice, a staple food in my country for this long! Rice is a daily item on everyone's menu in Nigeria, and we have so many recipes, and even so many different ways of cooking the same dish, you'll be amazed- i was once told that there are seven different ways of cooking jollof rice! Seven! I know only two!
There are some dishes that are common - jollof rice, fried rice, rice and stew, etc, while there are some that are unique - coconut rice, green rice, etc. There is also our very own native rice - ofada rice, which is the first choice at parties these days.
Let's begin the rice journey!
