The Nigerian native Jollof Rice, also known as Palm oil Rice is a hearty, flavourful and and deeply comforting meal. It is quite different from the popular Nigerian Jollof Rice because this recipe uses Palm Oil and other indigenous Nigerian spices.
With the perfect balance of indigenous Nigerian spices like iru/dawadawa, together with dried Fish or smoked Fish, you can create this easy yet delicious palm oil Rice.
