Fellow foodies, today's recipe is one of my  favorites even though I don't make it often. Remember when I told you about The Place being one of my favorite fast food outlets in Lagos? I'm sure I mentioned their's very good, but not as good as this recipe I'm about to give you. LOL. Because this one na baddo and it's very simple! If you feel it's easier to to watch the video so you can actually see the step by step, then feel play below! Wait...have you SUBSCRIBED to my Youtube Channel? What are you waiting for? Click HERE

Ata Rodo
Green chill
Green Pepper
Boulion cubes
Chicken stock
Mixed Vegetables


  • In a pot of boiling water, place your spaghetti, add some salt and a tablespoon of vegetable oil. I usually don't like to break my spaghetti. Boil for 5 minutes, pour in a sieve and drain then set aside.
  • Blend your tomato, ata rodo, green chilli (this green chilli gives a very unique taste) tatashe and 1 bulb of onion. Blend smooth.
  • Heat up your pan (I like to use a big wok instead), add a bit of vegetable oil, allow that to heat up.
  • Add sliced onions to the oil, add some curry, when the onion is a bit soft, add the sliced green pepper. Let it fry for about a  minute. Every where should be tasonsoning by now (nice aroma)
  • Add your blended tomato mixture, add a bit of salt and some maggi, add thyme and allow to fry for like 10  minutes. You will know the stew is cooked once the oil starts floating
  • Add mixed vegetables and allow to cook for 2 minutes. Mixed vegetables includes sweet corn, green beans, peas, carrots.
  • Add your spaghetti to the mixture, I like to add mine bit by bit because sometimes the spaghetti will be more than the stew and you don't want that. Any left over spaghetti is used another day. 
  • After combining mixture, add your chicken stock. Your chicken stock should be thick so that just a bit goes a long way (when I boil chicken I don't add water, so the stock is always concentrated and thick). mix together and let it stay for 2 minutes (cover the pot).
  • Slice some more green pepper and add to the spaghetti, let it simmer. This green pepper is what give it an extra delicious aroma and flavour. 

Try it! How else do you prepare your jollof spaghetti?

  9. Very nice. Thanks for this,will def try it. Errm,if you don't add water when boiling chicken,what do you use?

    1. Please try it! I use soft chicken, and with that after washing and placing in the pot it tends to bring out bit of it's own juice, might not be a lot but it is enough to cook the chicken and makes the stock very thick and concentrated.

  18. Hi - Im looking at all your joloff recipes - delicious bu the way - snd notice that there are no measurements of ingredients, I've bern bugging my Mommy for years to teach me how to make her perfect joloff rice but she too doesnt give measurements.
    It's a lot harder for me since I never quit learned and would love to be able to make this and joloff spaghetti, joloff jambalaya and coconut joloff and present it to her for her approval

  19. Wow, dis looks good. Gonna try it out today

  20. When the recipe calls for green chili, which chili is used? A shishito? It's the only thing I've found that looks similar. Look forward to hearing from you.
