Note 1: This is my little secret I use when preparing Nigerian jollof rice especially when I want to get that perfect red party jollof rice colour. In order to get that perfect redness, follow our guide.

Note2: I use plenty of paprika (red bell peppers/tatashe), enough of fresh tomatoes and as well tomato paste. If you use only paprika, your rice will turn out very dry.

This is because paprika (bell pepper) isnt really juicy as fresh tomato and if you use only tomato, it will not give the rice that redness that you need so, it is best you combine both paprika and tomato to make this.
