Just showing you how I make my Nigerian Smoky Party Jollof Rice. This recipe feeds roughly 20 people.

I’ve also included measurements for a smaller portion which feeds roughly 8 people.

I recorded a longer extended version of this recipe with audio instructions. I’ll post it hopefully, by the weekend.

Ideally, your Jollof should turm out drier than mine. I made mine on a pretty small electric hob (so I could record the video), the heat wasn’t high enough to properly distribute throughout the pot. Ensure the base of your pot fits the hob you’re using.

    2. Hello, thanks for sharing! For the 6-8 recipe in the description box, it says 2tbs of white pepper, thyme etc, is this correct? As 6 tsp is 2 tbsp and 6 tsp was used in the 20 people version.

    8. Hello, is there another oil I can use outside of vegetable oil? Can I use palm oil?

    9. For smoky jollof what usually works for me you just have to let it burn in the bottom for 5 minutes for the smoke to rise all over the rice then reduce heat. Perfect every time ☺️☺️

    10. What rice do you use? Mine never comes out as good as yours

    11. What's the butter for?

    25. Thank you soooooooo much for this recipe. I prepared it for the first time last week Saturday and everyone kept complimenting how amazing it tasted. They've officially turned me to the jollof rice master of the house and finished the whole pot that day.

    35. What does the butter do?

    36. Well done ma. Pls, I can't see the measurement ma.

    37. This recipe was literally the best!.i tried it once and I got a very delicious party jollof rice .Thank you for sharing❤️

    38. Nice. But you didn’t show us how you did the rice. Did you parboil? What did you do? That’s the most important part

    39. Can I use blue band butter?

    40. Wow…This is lovely👍…But please tell me…What is the work of the magarine and butter?

    41. I’m shocked to come across a Nigerian recipe with measurements. I love u for this. There is no other Nigerian cook in my eyes apart from u from now on, and that’s coming from a Nigerian loll

    42. Excuse me please any time I see recipes with onions …..are the onions referring to the one added in tomato blend or for frying

    43. I enjoy your videos normally but this just had me really confused. It wasn’t as detailed as the others. Please what did you cook at first? Did you just make stew first then add the rice ? And was the rice parboiled cause it didn’t look raw

    44. I’m so lost

    45. Please what did you cook at the beginning of the video
