    tropical fried rice.
    Here in Nigeria, rice is one of the most eaten foods in the country, there are various ways of eating rice and the most common ones include:

    · Jollof rice

    · White rice

    · Fried rice

    · Ofada rice

    · Concussion rice

    Various additions and alterations can be made when making rice depending on preference.

    Rice is known to have quite a large amount of carbohydrates and calories so it’s highly advisable to include vegetables in your rice for a balanced diet.

    I’m going to be focusing on fried rice but instead of your regular fried rice it’s going to be called the Tropical Fried Rice. It is sometimes called Pineapple Fried Rice. Tropical fried Rice gives you a break from the regular fried rice and gives you a warm, fuzzy tropical feel!

    1. In a small bowl, mix together in a whisking motion the soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger powder, dry pepper and set aside.

    2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or wok, a large pan can also be used over a medium heat. Add garlic and onion to pan, stirring often till the onions have become translucent, for about 3-4 minutes.
