Jollof Rice!

So. Today’s “Google Doodle” is (God knows why) on the subject of “Jollof Rice.”

Jollof Rice is a staple of West African (particularly Nigerian) cuisine, and it is–along with such stuff as fried plantains and groundnut chop, that with which I grew up.

I’ve never found a recipe since, which approximated my hazy memories of the delectable dish of my late 1950s, early 1960s childhood. but I’ll keep trying. (This one might be getting there.)

Anyone who has any suggestions for the perfect rendition of Jollof Rice, please weigh in.
