African Food

The celebration of the abolition of slavery in the UK in 2007 presented the opportunity for the African community to establish some records directly. One such entry relates to the kitchen. The origin of a certain world cuisine rightfully belongs to the continent of Africa.

Creole food, New Orleans food, American soul food, were all cooking styles, introduced into the continent of America by West African women.

Cooking was the only art form of expression open to these women. These women cooked food that was invariable, useful and pleasant. When emancipation came, many of these plantation chefs created restaurants and cafes in the south and gave America what is now known as Creole food, food in New Orleans and African American soul food.

These African women in the diaspora popularized the rice dish Jollof Rice or Yoruba (Iresi Aropo). Today it is usually called jambalaya by Americans. Jolfough’s rice is an African dish that becomes popular in the UK. Many embassies in London order a copious amount of this spicy rice dish at the end of the year. Most of them no longer contain cold sandwiches and sausage rolls in their menu. Many now go on to some fascinating dishes from West Africa.

JOLLOF RICE

Figure Jolfa is the progenitor of Jambalaya. He appears in the culinary cultures of several peoples. He is known as Paella in Spain, Pillar in India, Risotto in Italy, Ploff in Russia and Jambalaya among African Americans.

Rice Zoloft enjoys the extent and breadth of West Africa and Nigeria in particular. Black women, taken from the African continent, took a dish in the African diaspora and popularized it.

method

Pour the vegetable oil, rice, onion, shrimp and dried coconut, into a large cooking pot. Crush the oxo cubes into the contents of the pot.

Add salt and begin to gently stir the contents of the frying pan at low and medium temperature for 5 minutes or until the rice and onion begin to brown.

Turn the fire to a shallow level, and then add warm water to the rice without stirring.

Spoon in a can of tomato sauce Naija Alafia. (do not bother!)

Pour the frozen mixed vegetables onto the rice (without stirring.) Stirring at this stage will cause the rice to start burning at the base without cooking.

Cover the pot tightly with a lid or kitchen foil and allow to boil or skip in 10-15 minutes.

Look at for at least 10 minutes to see if the rice is cooked and softened. If the rice is still not softening, add a little water if the pot is dry. Cover and let cook or steam for 5 to 10 minutes.

Gently mix all contents of the pot before serving. Fried bananas with broccoli stewed in Nigge. A great peanut is a perfect accompaniment to Zoloft rice.
