Milk Street Recipe

Jollof Rice

45 minutes

Jollof Rice

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.
