Rice is a general food in our country Nigeria and we sometimes get tired of eating the same thing over and over again for some persons who are its lovers. Although , you will agree we have other foods in Nigeria which varies in different cultures and of course are very nutritional. And so, we thought of making this kind of visible so you can probably include in your timetable.
Ofada rice which is mainly grown in southwest and named after a town in Ogun state is very nutritious because of its highness in fiber which of course is very good for our body especially for our older ones. Likewise Ofada rice is not very easy or fast to cook like our normal or usual rice. Some persons might not like it because of the scent it produces, stones in between and maybe sands too but not to worry, there are some processed ones that have already done the stress of picking for you and are already packaged and enables you enjoy the cooking of this beautiful delicacy.
Also, this delicacy will be so enjoyed with the beautiful and assorted stew that will make it go down very well and except of course you would like to try out with vegetables to complete your diet.
