Jollof Rice, There is a debate going on between Ghanaians and Nigerians about who cook this spicy rice tomato dish the best.

Never mind about Senegal where Jollof rice originated. This is a discussion between Ghanaians and Nigerians. No one is invited! Well, unless you are a Senegalese! Eaten in most part of West Africa
