Strip Coconut Jollof Rice
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you coconut jasmine jollof rice. The combination of
flavours is deliciously unique. The natural flavour of jasmine rice, the occasional taste and
crunch of the coconut, and the jollof flavour all complement each other in a way never
imagined possible. No one taste completely overwhelms the other. The meal leaves you
guessing which taste you will meet next with each bite. Enjoy!
