Fat rice

20170212_174455

Another Burkinabe dish, fat rice — so named, apparently, because of the amount of oil that is used.  Probably not entirely necessay, either…

As this came together, it was disparaged — gooey rice?  Seems less than interesting as a dish of national purport.  It was also supposed to have meat.  And cabbage.  And boullion (apparently, only Maggi, at that…).

Despite failings in all of those regards, it turned out to be somewhat addicting, the blend of flavors pulling more onto plates.  Some protein added in would likely bring it even better; it turned out pretty fine just as it were.

Some versions keep the veggies whole — this version blended:  A sort of African risotto…
