Every fan of African food knows that jollof rice is the holy grail of African cuisine and that a menu with jollof isn’t complete without a generous serving of fried plantain. So when we came across a recipe for Jollof and Plantain Arancini, we put on our glasses in disbelief, brought out our pots and pans to try it out and finally pen and paper to give this ingenious concoction a raving review.
