Jollof Rice

Monash African Society (MAFS) is a vibrant and inclusive club aimed at connecting Monash students who are of African descent or are interested in learning more about African culture. We provide a space to promote cultural diversity, as well as encourage awareness of and involvement in African culture, history and current affairs. Our primary goal is to establish a diverse community in which students who identify with and/or appreciate the African experience can socialise, be educated and network.

All information regarding our upcoming events, including dates, venues and start times, will be available on our Facebook and Instagram, feel free to give us a like and a follow! If you are interested in joining or learning more about the club, contact us through our Facebook or send an email to


2 cups of white rice
150g tomato paste or 700g of passata
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1-2 teaspoons chicken stock powder
1-2 chopped onions
1 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon curry powder*
1 tablespoon thyme
1 teaspoon ground chilli powder*

*Add more (or less) to your liking



Step 1
Pour 4-5 cups of water in a large pot and allow to boil over a stove.

Step 2
Add the tomato paste or passata, oil, salt, pepper, curry powder, thyme, chilli powder and chopped onions. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat slightly and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3
Wash rice thoroughly and add to pot. Stir to combine and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent the rice from sticking, until the rice is cooked through. Turn off the heat, cover with the lid and leave to steam for 15 minutes without removing the lid.

Step 4
Taste rice to check if cooked. If not, add minimum water to allow further cooking and cover the pot again until the rice is cooked.
