Call it Jollof Rice, Jolof Rice, Joll of Rice, Djolof Rice, Osikapa Jelof, Red rice or Party rice you are right. Adults and children love this spicy and tasty rice meal.  Jollof rice is a favourite meal in the West African region and very popular amongst Nigerians and Ghanaians alike. I do not know a social function in Lagos or Accra where Jollof rice is not served or at least listed in the menu

The origin of Jollof Rice is traceable to the Jollof tribe in the Senegambia region of West Africa. Jollof rice is also called “Benachin” which means “one pot” in the Wolof language. The traditional ingredients are rice, fresh tomatoes, tomato paste, onion, salt, and chili pepper. Other ingredients such as fish, vegetables, meats, ginger and other spices can be added to enhance the taste. Today Jollof rice can be prepared in different ways by the various peoples that savor it but the basic ingredients remain the same.
