Recipe- How To Make Native Jollof RiceHey mums, our recipe this week is Native Jollof Rice. Popularly known as concoction rice, it is quite similar to our very own Jollof Rice, however, it offers unique traditional flavors with locust beans and other native ingredients (we can say it is Jollof Rice as our grandmothers made it in those days)
