Some combinations are just classic for a very good reason. We can often be found feasting on chicken, fried rice and dodo for Sunday lunch.
Jollof rice might get all the deserved glory, but junior cousin Nigerian Fried Rice is also a winner in the tastes delicious race. Do you agree? To Jollof or to Fried Rice? That is the tough question of the day. If you could only pick one to eat for the REST of your life which would you go for?

We wouldn’t want you to miss out on enjoying this taste powerhouse and so here is a vegetable packed recipe to help you along. Most processed white rice has had the protein, vitamins and minerals removed, leaving a mainly carbohydrate product which is generally eaten with a protein rich food. However, the great thing about fried rice is that it reintroduces some of the vitamins and minerals that ordinarily would not be present in rice dishes.

1 Onion (chopped)
3 Carrots (diced)
1 Onion (diced)

1 tablespoon of African Plate Fried Rice Spice
Salt to taste
- Heat the vegetable oil in a pot.
