For our take on jollof, a one-pot rice dish popular in West Africa, 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 of diced tomatoes can be used in place of the plum tomatoes; no need to drain the juices.

Tip

Don’t forget to rinse and drain the rice. This washes away surface starch and decreases stickiness in the finished dish.

Good, but just good
I made it with Suya pork tenderloin, which was top notch. The rice was a good accompaniment, but on it's own, I thought the flavors were very middle of the road. Not something I'd heavily promote.
