    I love this was always something that we ate back home (Nigeria). I made the recipe to be very spicy but feel free to use half of the pepper or no pepper at all if you are not used to spicy foods

      I selected Nigerian recipes and enjoyed the adventure! I did not have any habanero peppers, I used cayenne pepper and a diced red pepper. I added a small can of tomatoes, but did not add all the juice as I thought it would be too much liquid with the coconut milk for the one cup of rice, since it was partially cooked already, it worked out to my liking! This is a mild flavoured rice, except for the heat from the pepper, I added some grated fresh ginger which I think added an extra little bite too. Served with Nigerian Suya to create a tasty dinner! Prepared for the New African Recipe Tag Game March/2012...
