This delicacy is popular with African countries like Nigeria and Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Cameroon .

Meanwhile, Nigerians and Ghanaians have been in a friendly rivalry about who makes the best Jollof rice.

Recently, Ghanaians claimed their Jollof rice is better and sweeter than the the one Nigerians make but Nigerians are also quick to counter that theirs is best.

Meanwhile, Google has highlighted this difference,  noting further that Nigerians and Ghanaians use different species of rice to cook their jollof.

According to Google, “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.”
