Milk Street Recipe

Jollof Rice

45 minutes

For our take on the Nigerian jollof, a one-pot rice dish, we use nutty, fragrant basmati rice seasoned with paprika, curry powder and thyme. To ensure the rice cooks evenly, use a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid. A 14½-ounce can diced tomatoes can be used in place of the plum tomatoes; no need to drain the juices.

  • 1

    pound plum tomatoes, cored and quartered

  • 1

    red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and cut into quarters

  1. 01
    In a food processor, combine the tomatoes, bell pepper, garlic and 1 teaspoon salt. Process until smooth, about 1 minute. Set aside.
