Jollof Rice Recipe

INGREDIENTS 

400g BASMATI RICE
3 red peppers, halved and deseeded
1 white onion, halved
2 garlic cloves
1 tbsp grated ginger, or ginger purée
1 Scotch bonnet chilli, deseeded if you prefer less heat (optional)
5 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil
100g tomato purée
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp dried thyme
2tsp curry powder (we used hot madras)
½ tsp ground white pepper
600ml hot CHICKEN STOCK

METHOD

STEP 1

Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Tip the rice in a sieve, rinse under cold water, drain and set aside. Put the peppers, onion, garlic, ginger and chilli, if using, in a food processor and blitz until chopped.

STEP 2

Heat the oil in an ovenproof casserole over a medium heat and fry the tomato purée for 2-3 mins, stirring often. Add the blitzed pepper mixture and fry for 5 mins more, then add the herbs, spices and 1 tsp salt. Fry for a further 1-2 mins, then stir in the rice to coat. Pour in the stock, stir, cover and bake for 45 mins until the rice is tender.
