World Jollof Rice Day 2016: Jollof Rice Overload!

I don’t know who started this setting out a particular day in a year to celebrate Jollof Rice. I eat Jollof Rice at least once a week so I celebrate it at least 52 times a year. It is my favourite rice dish: Boiled Rice and Stew is too messy for me while Fried Rice is too busy for me. 😉

Ngwanu, since they want use to be celebrating this awesome NIGERIAN dish *dodges shoes thrown by the Ghanaians and the Senegalese in the house* LOL, let’s celebrate with the following plates of Jollof Rice submitted by some of you!
