    This originated in French colonial Africa. I found this in a cookbook under NIGERIA. It's very similar to jambalaya.

      Definitely a five-star recipe! I prepared this lovely fragrant and very flavourful dish using freshly grated ginger, fresh thyme and a cinnamon stick to replace the dried spices and I was pleased with the results. I followed the recipe up to step 8, when I added the rice I put the ingredients into a large covered casserole and finished the cooking in the oven for 35 minutes. The rice was perfectly cooked. Prepared for the New African Recipe Tag Game in the African forum February 2012.
