You can use parboiled rice or long grain. Add a small plastic grocery bag to cover the pot and then add the lid. You will burn the bottom of the pan. There's really no way to stop that from happening so just add the bag to the top, put it on Low-Medium and let it cook and soften. Add water throughout the process. There's really no precise way to make it. I add as much water as needed. You just know when it's perfect.

I was using jasmine rice. I've never cooked jasmine rice before and long grain rice is what I usually use...

I am not Nigerian but learned how to cook jollof from a friend. What kind of rice are you using? Long grain rice is the best.

When it was hard you shouldve put a little bit of water then cover the pot with plastic bag to steam. This way it won't mush.

I do put mine in the oven. This way it's spread out and can dry properly without being mushy.

Just blend tomatoes, onions, red bell peppers then fry it. Add chicken or meat stock, tomatoes paste, tyme and a tad of garlic Maggie cubes and salt and add a bit of water. When the mixture starts boiling wash the rice with salt and rinse it off. Then add the rice to the mixture. Measure the water to the ratio of rice you use. Then steam over the pot or in a pan in the oven. Then enjoy.

Hi, everyone. I rarely post anymore, only lurk. But I'm in a dilemma. I just tried to make jollof rice for my boyfriend who is Nigerian and I will say that I failed somewhat miserably Cry

He said it looked and tasted good, but the rice was sort of hard. My stomach got upset from eating the rice.Cry He's trying to make me feel better. So, then I tried putting more water and the whole thing is just mushy and unedible. Thank the Lord I didn't try to bring it to his family.

I got the recipe from a coworker who is not Nigerian but married to a West African. She makes her using the oven, but I saw that online most people use the stove.

I have eaten jollof rice so I knew what I should have gotten, but even my nigerian friends tell me that it is definitely an art to make, not very easy. I come from a Jamaican background ( which hard enough to cook). I'm pretty good with recipes, so I don't know where I went wrong with all of this, but I just wanted to make a few things from his culture since he's always to eating from mine.

I'm hoping someone could give me there go to recipe for jollof rice. I refuse to give up!
