Jollof Rice with Bailan Spice


  • 1 lb Chicken or beef
  • 4 Tsp of Bailan African Hot Chicken Spice
  • 1 1/2 cups of white rice
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 large onion
  • 1/2 can/tube pure tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1 small bag of frozen carrots and peas
  • Salt to taste
  • Chili flakes for added heat (optional)

How To

  • Cook rice in rice cooker with salt.
    • Tip 1: Always rinse the rice in a bowl twice till the water looks clear before cooking for a better taste
    • Tip 2: Cool the rice once cooked in the fridge or cook earlier to prevent sticky rice.
  • Blend the tomato and onion separately and set aside
  • Dice chicken or beef into cubes and cook with salt and 1/4 of the blended onion.
    • Note: When the chicken/beef cooks, save the stock for the rice and brown the chicken/beef in an oven or air fryer.
  • While the chicken/beef cooks, put the blended tomato, onion, pure tomato, oil, and Bailan African Hot Chicken Spice, and 1/2 cup of water into a pot and cook on medium heat for 15minutes till the water dries out, and the tomato begins to sizzle in the oil.
  • Pour in chicken/beef stock from cooked meat, carrots, and peas. Cook for 5mins
  • Add in the cool cooked rice. Mix well, so all white rice is covered in delicious tomato sauce
  • Add the browned chicken/beef, salt, and chili flakes as needed for taste.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!
