Nigerian Rice and Spaghetti Recipes

Nigerian Rice Recipes include: Nigerian Rice and Stew, Jollof Rice, Fried Rice, Coconut Rice. Learn how to cook these popular Nigerian Rice Recipes.

Rice is one of the most common staple foods in Nigeria. Most families eat a rice dish at least twice a week, either for lunch or for dinner.

We have two ways of cooking rice in Nigeria: White, served with stew or sauce and Jollof which is where the ingredients are added into and cooked with the rice (one-pot rice recipes).

We use the long grain parboiled white rice also known as American rice to cook Nigerian rice recipes especially the rice recipes where the ingredients are added into the rice. If you use any other type of rice with the cooking directions detailed on this site, your Nigerian rice recipes may not turn out well. It is OK to use any type of rice when cooking white rice where the sauce or stew is separate from the rice. There is a recipe for using basmati rice to prepare jollof rice recipes.

Rice can also be boiled and mashed to get a fufu meal that we eat with Nigerian soups.
