Here are the 7 most popular Nigerian dishes, some of them are pretty easy to replicate, and the rest would require a little more effort.
The first on my list would be the all too popular jollof rice. There are just too many jollof rice recipes out there but I think this takes the cake. They basically take the same process; the difference could be simply the addition of vegetables/fruits, the use of chicken instead of fish, choice of spice, etc. Jollof rice can be fixed during the rush hour, in less than 60 minutes, I have done that a couple of times. If you have most of the required ingredients stashed away in the freezer, you can do it too.
There is nothing really special with this, slice some carrot, green pepper, red pepper, green beans and add them just three minutes before you turn off the heat.
White Rice and tomato stew.
These sure look delicious, most Nigerian homes make the simpler version of this food; the only difference with that and this is just the addition of carrot/green beans. I believe the addition of these vegetables does not only make your food look inviting, but it also makes it healthy too.
Just boil your white rice the usual way, add the sliced carrot/green beans just 3 minutes before you turn off the heat.
Egusi Soup and Eba.
The third on my list would be egusi soup and eba, or fufu (as in the case of the dish above). This is one of the popular Nigerian dishes, this soup is well received in Nigeria, it is mostly served alongside eba (prepared garri), fufu or semo. Egusi soup is easy to prepare.
Fried rice is one of the most outstanding Nigerian rice meals, it’s like the best of Nigerian dishes, everybody loves fried rice. However, the recipe is not as simple as that of jollof rice or tomato stew, there is a learning curve, but once you are able to master the process, it becomes pretty much as easy as most Nigerian recipes. The link below shows you how to make fried rice the Nigerian way.
On my list of popular Nigerian dishes would be porridge yam. This meal can turn out really delicious if you know what you are really doing. If you want to enjoy this meal, use yams that are older than 7 months, newly harvested yams are not just good for porridge yam.
