Reasons why your Jollof rice doesn’t come out well

You! Yes, you. Come in here. Have you ever wondered why your jollof rice does not have that perfect Jollofy taste? Well, I’m here to tell you some reasons why your Jollof rice does not come out perfect.

  1. You do not fry your ingredients properly. I’ve seen some people mix their cut onions, tomatoes and spices together in a plate before transferring it into a pot to fry. This is totally wrong. There is a reason why you have to fry your ingredients one after the other properly. This helps to release all the taste and flavour from the different ingredients. Start off first by frying your onions and other things can follow.
  2. You do not use enough tomatoes. To get that perfect Jollof rice taste, you need to use enough tomatoes. You can use both fresh and tin tomatoes to get that perfect jollof taste.
  3. Close your pot tightly. This is one trick you should always do when cooking jollof rice. Always make sure that your pot cover is tightly closed, if possible, use a foil to place on the pot and close the lid. Doing this helps to trap all the steam and ingredients inside the pot to give it a perfect taste.

So there you go guys, these are the tips that can help you achieve that perfect Jollof rice taste. Go ahead and try them and I’ll be here waiting to see your comments in the comment section if they worked. Bye!
