Jollof Rice | Ghana West Africa
Rice cooked in tomato sauce with spices and herbs. Jollof Rice. There is a debate going on between Ghanaians and Nigerians about who cook this spicy rice tomato dish the best. Well, I am not saying I am among them, I am just saying that some Ghanaians are saying, Nigerians started Jollof Rice, and we the Ghanaians perfected it! Hehehe never mind about the Senegalese, Congo or Gambians where Jollof Rice originated. This is a discussion between Ghanaians and Nigerians. No one is invited! Alright, you are invited!
