Nigerian Concoction Rice

Some call it "concoction" and some call it "management rice"; whatever we all choose to call it depends on our individual memories of this classic dish. 

This rice dish is an "emergency dish"; which is normally cooked just to fill up tummy space when hunger strikes. The difference between this dish and the classic Jollof Rice is that the ingredients used are quite unusual in comparison to that of Jollof Rice. This dish can be experimented with and you can try any ingredient.... An example is IRU (locust beans)... which gives the dish a more local acquire-taste. 

This dish is perfect for families, students or bachelors/ladies who just can't be bothered to cook a proper meal. 

I hope you enjoy cooking this and most importantly, enjoy eating it too :)

Medium-sized tomatoes (x3)
