Nigerian fried rice recipe!

Prepare this super recipe for hubby and thank me later!

A friend of mine newly married, not up to 6 months, called me to teach her how to make fried rice.

This Super Nigerian fried rice recipe was actually the recipe on my list for next week, but I decided to make it this week because of my friend.

She got married to a man that doesn’t joke with fried rice. Depriving hubby of his favorite, you know what that meant.

To totally rule out the fact that hubby goes out to have fried rice treat when he has a wife.

I broke protocol to avoid stories that touches, and taught her how to prepare super Nigerian fried rice, twas so so super  delicious.

Hubby was so impressed and applauded  her, because he can always enjoy his favorite, any time,  any day.

Fried rice recipe is a popular Nigerian dish loved by many.

You don’t talk of event organized in Nigeria without a pot of fried rice.

Nigerian fried rice recipe is so so special, delicious and colourful because of the assorted vegetables used in preparation .

It is reserved for the guest of honour in some events, which shows how special it is. Jollof rice can be served generally, not fried rice. Lol!

My Super Nigerian fried rice was Super delicious with the organic mixed spices I used which gave it a super taste and flavour.

It was prepared with green beans, carrot, green pepper, cow liver, chicken, the rest of the ingredients are on the list.

My rice wasn’t  parboiled , rather  washed with cold and hot water.

Take note of the water level of the rice in the picture below, can water little at a time till it get well done.

You need extra carefulness for fried rice to come out fine.

Please note that fried rice goes bad on time compared to jollof because of the vegetables.

I once had this experience. Don’t leave to stay hours, refrigerate or you can as well heat to avoid that.
