Cookbook | Ingredients | Recipes

Iresi eyin is one of the Yoruba versions of a palm oil rice dish also called palm oil rice/native Jollof rice. It is more accurately described as a palm oil rice. It is different from Yoruba jollof/Yoruba Party Jollof/ Nigerian jollof, which is more popular. It is very nutritious and easy to prepare—all that is required is to mix the ingredients together in a pot.
