To really make the dish shine, I like to serve it with baked or fried chicken and some chilled drinks on the side. It’s always a big hit with my guests and they always ask for seconds. If you’re looking to impress your guests with a show-stopping jollof rice dish, then this is definitely the recipe for you.
If you want your party jollof rice to turn out perfectly, make sure to use plenty of paprika (red bell peppers tatashe), enough fresh tomatoes, and as well tomato paste. Without these key ingredients, your dish will be bland and unappetizing. By following this simple advice, you can ensure that your party jollof rice will be a hit with everyone.
This is because paprika (bell pepper) isn’t 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.
