Jollof rice is one of the most common dishes in West Africa, especially in Sierra Leone where it is cooked for special occasions like birthday parties, wedding, etc. There are several regional variations in name and ingredients.
Despite the variations, the dish is "mutually intelligible" across West Africa and has become the best-known African dish outside the continent.
Jollof rice traditionally consists of rice, cooking oil, and vegetables such as tomato, onion, red pepper, garlic, ginger and chili peppers. Tomato paste is added to enhance the color of the dish. As seasoning, spices, salt, stock cubes (a blend of flavor enhancers, nut meg and herbs) are used. Chicken, turkey, beef or fried fish are often served with the dish to compliment it.
