1. Fast and Easy Assembly Line Kind of Jollof Rice Recipe
This recipe is by All Nigerian Recipe. If you don’t like spending too much time cooking. You will need to do some work ahead though. You will enjoy this the most if you make food in bulk. I call this the assembly line cooking style because if you have already made chicken broth, sauce and grilled chicken you are ready to go. These are all ingredients that you can make in bulk and store in your freezer. Whenever you are ready you just assemble the ingredients and voila! in a short time, you have a delicious meal.

2. Easy to Try Jollof Rice Recipe
Here is another good recipe by Saiprojects. She is a very good teacher and shows the steps in an easy way to try out for a beginner or someone cooking Jollof rice for the first time ever. She has a nice accent too. What I would add is that in order to avoid some mess, I would use the foil paper to cover the pot before putting the lid on as against putting it inside the rice. It will bring out the same result with less mess. Also she forgot to mention that the chicken is fully cooked and likely seasoned too. The Peri-Peri chicken is a really nice complement to any rice meal especially Jollof Rice. This video is 13.48minutes long.
3. Best Pots to Make Jollof Rice In
Afrofood in the video displays the kind of authentic pot used in the local villages of Africa. The cast iron pot is usually the best to cook any African meal. The food actually tastes better in this pot. If you have some extra I will recommend that this kind of pot is an essentials for your kitchen. The best Jollof Rice does not need so much water to cook, its better steamed. The cast iron pot cover is heavier than the ordinary pot cover so this pot will help keep the steam inside the pot doing what it should. You might also enjoy her music too. Hmm hmm..All this talking about yummy food is making me hungry, I think I need to get cooking too. This video is 9.06 minutes.
4. Parboiling The Rice in Your Jollof Rice Recipe
Africanfoodtv proves in her video that even if you vary the recipe you can still come to the same end product as long as you have the correct ingredients. One major difference here is that she parboiled her rice for 7 mins. This is another additional process that does not really affect much, but if you are used to it, its ok. I wished that she actually added some good music or voice to the video. You will notice that she actually improvised with her old rice cooker at the beginning and changed the pot. I have never tried cooking Jollof rice in a rice cooker. I might actually add that to my to do list This video is 5.00 minutes.
5. Ghanaian Style Recipe with Vegetables
Maatweety’s recipe is a lot more complex and has more steps. She shows that you can add other vegetables to your jollof rice recipe. She added carrot, you could try green peas of green beans and corn. The video is enriched with a nice Ghanaian Reggae music. You will see a rich and tasty home made chicken broth recipe as part of the video. A hand blender will do the job too. I love using wooden spoons for Jollof rice too. This video is 11.31 minutes.
