Hi mum, tired of jollof and fried rice? Hehehe (not that anyone can be) If yes, then you don’t have to think jollof rice or fried rice all the time. Turmeric rice is now here for you. Turmeric which is peppery, warm and has a somewhat bitter taste gives this meal a distinct yellow color. The sight of this meal is nothing but mouth-watering.
