Food and creativity go hand in hand, and the more creative, the more tastier. To the conservative quarters, additions or changes to a certain meal may be something off-the-mark, but for those who have adventurous taste buds, every new experience is a welcome one.
The team at African Chow came up with a new invention: Jollof rice sushi. And it's becoming a thing, quite fast. While some may still want the original jollof rice, with the contentious conversation of its origins that surrounds it, the 'jollof rice sushi roll' is something that may be just appealing to some sections.
It is a switch from the Japanese sushi,and here a blend of West African flavours and Japanese cooking techniques is quite brilliant. Healthy, vegan friendly, it is something your life could be just craving.
An Instagram video by African Chow shows the preparation of Jollof rice sushi, and you can just try it out too. In the post African Chow said, "Jollof rice, a savory one-pot dish with a tomato base is synonymous with West African cuisine. In fact, there have been great debates as to which country holds the crown in preparing the best version. Despite national variations of this popular dish it represents the interconnectedness that African Chow strives to showcase. Try our creative spin on this famous dish… 'Jollof Rolls.' So put aside your allegiance and try this unique, healthy, vegan friendly version."
The reaction to it has been interesting. Some approve of it, some question its origins, some are refusing to accept it's becoming a thing. But it's becoming a thing.
