Chelsea’s forward, Tammy Abraham, has waded in the debate over who makes the best jollof between Ghana and Nigeria.
Whilst Jollof is hugely popular in other West African countries such as Senegal, The Gambia, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Cameroon, the debate over which country’s version tastes better appears to be between Ghana and Nigeria.
This could be as a result of the long-standing ties between the two countries.
The dish is prepared with rice and tomato sauce but is uniquely prepared in various countries due to the other ingredients used.
Giving his judgement on the matter, the 22-year-old centre-forward who committed his international future to England over Nigeria, declared Nigeria’s version of jollof as the best.
“Can I cook jollof? Absolutely not but my mum can so probably the meal I have had most in quarantine has been jollof rice. The Nigeria version is my choice to be honest. The Ghanaian one is a little bit more spicy but it is about the flavours, not just about the spice, how it sits in your mouth, how it digests into your stomach,” he told BBC’s Football Focus.
On the matter of how is keeping fit during the coronavirus break, he said that:
“We have a schedule from the club,’ he confirmed. ‘You can mix it up if you really want to. It is going for a run, different types of run, upper-body sessions, lower-body sessions. I keep active and any time I have the chance to kick a ball around the house I always take advantage of that and it has been good I have been staying active and fit,” he added
