Coconut Jollof Rice

I made coconut oil a few days ago and was wondering what can I do with the water from the processing? And yes, coconut jollof rice came to mind. Who doesn’t like jollof rice? With the argument between some countries who makes the best jollof rice? Do you know the countries arguing?  In case you don’t know let me whisper it into your ears; it’s Nigerians and Ghanaians, don’t tell anyone that I told you…lol. So, this shows that the majority of Africans love jollof rice…lol but this comes with coconut flavor, a plus, right?

So today’s recipe is not just jollof rice but with coconut. You should know by now that the combination is perfect. Don’t let me bore you let’s get to work.

Ingredients
  • 4 Cups Long Grain Rice
  • 13.5 Oz/400ml Coconut milk
  • 1 Cup Chicken broth (or your choice)
  • Vegetable Oil (your choice)
  • 2 Red bell pepper
  • 1 Habanero pepper/Rodo (add more or less)
  • 2 Big Tomato more for garnish
  • Ginger
  • 2 or more Onions
  • 6 Oz/170g Tomato paste
  • 1 Teaspoon White pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Curry
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried thyme
  • 2 Seasoning Cubes (your choice)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Water or coconut water
  • 1 Teaspoon Butter
  • Salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Blend the peppers with half onion and boil in a small pot.

  2. In a large pot, heat oil while oil is heating chopped the half onion and fry in the pot. Add thyme, curry, fry until translucent and release fragrant. Add ginger (I used it whole, you can grate or mince it), bay leaf, pepper, tomato paste and fry until it thickens.

  3. Add chicken broth and bring to boil. Add seasoning cubes and salt.

  4. On the other hand, wash the rice in cold water until the water runs clear.

  5. In another pot, cover the rice with coconut water and milk. Let the coconut milk and water cover the rice just a little bit. Steam the rice (al dente) do not cook all through because the rice is still going to be mixed with the pepper mixture. 

  6. Pour rice into the pepper or pour pepper into the rice (whichever way you want) and mix.

  9. After a while, check and if the rice is done, scoop like a teaspoon of butter and add. Stir and let everything incorporate then cover and turn off the heat. It is okay if it burns a bit. Burn bottom rice is the real deal...lol. Remove the ginger (if you use it whole and not mince) and bay leaf. You can also add some coconut flakes if you desire.

Recipe Notes

You can use any seasoning of your choice, but don't use too much so it doesn't overpower the coconut flavor.
