To make tasty jollof rice, follow these instructions. Firstly, buy the required ingredients from the market: two sticks of long grain white rice, chicken (drumstick and chicken breast), salt, pepper (to taste), tomatoes, onions, and seasoning (three maggi cubes and thyme). Next, prepare the tomato stew by putting the fresh tomato blend in a pot and cooking it on high heat until all the water evaporates.
Begin by combining the vegetable oil and chopped onions in a pot. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until the oil separates from the tomato puree. Once finished, allow it to cool. Then, transfer the chicken stock (prepared by washing and cutting the chicken into pieces and cooking it with seasoning and two chopped onions) along with the tomato stew into a large pot. Let it boil.
To prepare jollof rice, combine thoroughly cooked and drained parboiled rice with salt and pepper according to preference. It is important to maintain the water level equal to that of the rice, ensuring complete evaporation during cooking. Lid the pot and cook on a low to medium heat setting in order to prevent scorching. Accompany the prepared jollof rice with fried plantain, salad, or coleslaw.
