Why Nigerian Jollof Beats Ghana Jollof –Tammy Abraham
Jollof is a one-pot rice meal very common in West African countries, with tomatoes and rice its major ingredients
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has picked Nigeria’s Jollof rice over the Ghanaian version.
For several decades, there has been an impassioned argument on whether Nigerians’ variety tastes better that than of the Ghanaians.
When asked to pick his Jollof, the England international picked that of his parents’ country, while disclosing who does the cooking for him.
“The Nigeria version is my choice to be honest,” Abraham told BBC’s Football Focus as reported by Chelsea website.
“The Ghanaian one is a little bit more spicy but it is about the flavours, not just about the spice, how it sits in your mouth, how it digests into your stomach.
“Can I cook Jollof? Absolutely not but my mum can so probably the meal I have had most in quarantine has been Jollof rice.
“My sister or my mum or dad cook for me, I am lucky to have them in the house and not have to do it myself.”
Abraham joined the Blues in 2004 before spending time on loan at Bristol City, Swansea City and Aston Villa.
