 For our newbies, the KFB foodie talk column – handled by Dobby of Dobbysignature – is basically for ladies and ‘guys’ that are interested in learning how to cook better ;).

have however got a guest for today’s food lesson and its none other than lifestyle blogger, SisiYemmie.

I know tomatoes “haff
cost” but don’t worry, you don’t need fresh tomatoes for this, with
tinned tomatoe paste /tomato sauce in a can you are good go! Initially I
was making Jollof but added a bunch of other ingredients and ended up
with a spoon-licking jambalaya rice. So can we call it Jambalaya Jollof?
T’s not 100% Jambalaya and it’s not 100% Jollof. LOL.

Name this dish!
Back to how delicious this was…Bobo said “don’t serve plenty for me oh“(fitfam tinz)…as a good wife I said “Ok
and gave him a small portion. This guy went back two times to that pot!
I no blame am, na the rice wey sweet I blame. Even Tito balance well to
wack the rice. So what are the ingredients? 

INGREDIENTS Tinned tomato paste- I prefer Gino because of the rich red colour Tomato Sauce-I stumbled on this one and loved it Peppers- Green, Red, Yello Sweet Corn Salt Maggi Vegetable Oil Bay Leaves Thyme Curry Black Pepper Chicken stock Basmati Rice Sausage PREPARATION

  • Chop your peppers, onion and sausage neatly.
  • Heat up your pot, add vegetable oil, sauté some of the chopped Onion, then add your tomato paste, your spices, and bay leaf.
  • Fry the tomato paste till it is cooked and it looks like small clumps, then add chicken stock and water. Allow to boil. 
  • When it is boiling, add your basmati rice, lower the heat and allow to cook.
  • Don’t allow the rice to be dry before turning it off, leave a bit of sauce.
  • In another pan, now sauté the remaining onion, cut sausage and medley of peppers. 
  • Add the rice to the sautéed vegetables and combine.Allow to simmer for 5 minutes and your jambalaya rice is ready!

A bus conductor and a tout (Agbero) were pictured as they exchanged blows right inside a gutter yesterday at Ikeja, Lagos.
An eyewitness Gbenga Oni stated that the Agbero demanded for money from the conductor as the driver of the danfo bus stopped to drop off passengers but the conductor refused to part with any sum insisting he was carrying a “Staff”.

An argument ensued and the men began to fling blows at each other, right inside the gutter.
