Google Doodle Celebrates Jollof Rice by Destinylink(m): 6:59am On Nov 04, 2022
Today’s Doodle celebrates jollof rice, a quintessential West African dish simmered in reduced tomatoes, onions, peppers and regional spices. Nigeria-based guest artist Haneefah Adam created the artwork and Senegalese jazz musician, Hervé Samb, created the soundtrack.

On this day each year, rice farmers plant and reap a bountiful harvest, and cooks across West Africa prepare to make fresh jollof. Also known as benachin and thieboudienne, jollof rice is a one-pot meal that originated from the Wolof tribe in the 14th century. The Wolof Empire, ruling parts of modern-day Senegal, The Gambia and Mauritania, popularized jollof throughout West Africa.

Although jollof rice was traditionally cooked with fish for dinner, Africans today also enjoy this savory dish for breakfast and lunch, and often substitute fish with chicken, beef or goat.

Each country has added its own spin to the recipe and West Africans engage in humorous banter over who makes the best jollof. These friendly rivalries, known as the “Jollof Wars,” have become an African cultural phenomenon.

Nigerians and Ghanaians are particularly competitive over who makes the best jollof — and for good reason. There are distinct differences between the two cooking styles. For example, Nigerians use long-grain rice that absorbs more spices, while Ghanaians use basmati rice with a more aromatic flavor.

Who ultimately makes the best jollof? No one can say for sure. The only way to find out is to try as many varieties as you can!

With all due respect, Senegalese jollof and the other jollofs are not mates! (including Nigerian)

If you know the process that goes into making that Senegalese jollof ehn...the prepping of all the fresh ingredients, the building of the flavour, the putting in, taking out, then putting in again...Nigerians simply do not have that patience. Trust me.

No matter how sweet the food you eat at home is, you can never enjoy your marriage if your wife isn't a virgin or disvirgined by you.


Google can celebrate all they want. But verily verily I say onto you. Except a man is married to a virgin woman he can never be totally happy in his marriage; he will cheat to have peace, he will stay out late to have peace, he will rush out of his home to have peace and it is very sure that he will use his hard earned money to train another man's child.

Don't sponsor wedding ceremony and take care of in-laws just to have a woman who was fvcked by another man with just two eggs and indomie. You're not a fool.


Fvck any girl you want but when it comes to marriage, find a virgin woman. Only her deserves your love and devotion.

Nigerian party Jellof Rice is the best in the world. Infact Nigerian meals are just the best in the world.

Some countries have a certain top meal not all meal are presentable but most Nigeria food is just something you present to people (outsiders) and they consume the with happiness.

Rice of any kind and Egusi soup is my favourite among them.

There’s nothing special about Senegalese jollof. People say they have the best jollof because obviously, they created jollof but in reality, Nigerians jollof beats every other nations jollof hands down.

Every neutral who have tasted several jollof dish can testify.

I hope you don't include amala and igbegiri in this your analysis. Southwest don't have anything in their kitchen. We, south south and probably southeast have it when it comes to food.

If you disagree, take a look at Tinubu. You'll discover his childhood was destroyed with bad food; reason he shouts 'emilokan' at old age.
