- Coconut Jollof rice
Coconut Jollof rice is a version made with coconut milk. To make this style of Jollof rice, the rice is first pre-cooked with coconut milk and then stir-fried in a well-seasoned pepper-onion mixture. It is very tasty.
- Pineapple Jollof rice
Pineapple Jollof rice is a mixture of pineapple and Jollof. The pineapples are simply stir-fried with the pepper sauce before adding the rice.
- Party Jollof
Party Jollof is literally the best type of Jollof in Nigeria because of its unique taste. A party is incomplete in Nigeria if there is no party Jollof.
- Vegetable Jollof rice
Jollof can also be made attractive and healthy by adding vegetables like carrot, green peas, green beans and green pepper, among others.
- Baked Jollof rice
Baked Jollof rice is similar to party Jollof, only that it is baked. The Jollof rice sauce is first prepared and spread in a baking pan. The raw rice is then added to the sauce alongside chicken sauce and is allowed to bake until the rice is well cooked.
