Nigerian Rice -Your View!

Since the Nigerian border was closed months ago, most Nigerians are left with no choice than to revert to our local rice.......






 Have you eaten the Nigerian rice?Is it good?Would you continue even if the Border is re-opened?Is it cheaper to afford?

    1. Some supermarkets still sell foreign rice. I got a bag of foreign rice a few weeks ago for N28,500. Haven't eaten local rice in a while but I enjoy the rice used in eating ofada sauce, I think it's abakiliki rice. Very nice without the stones of course.

    7. I’ve always LOVED Local Rice...

      I don’t like Foreign rice at all...

      Local Rice(Abakaliki Rice(destined) always got me covered.. Lival rice is more tasty, more nutritious and has all it nutrients intact unlike Foreign Rice that has been stripped off its Nutritional value..

      Local Rice is BAE..

      NB: Always wash the rice, at least five(5) before cooking and use a little water to cook, you can always top up...

    8. Seriously,I dont know the local rice they all bought, me I am not eating foreign rice again laid laid.
      The one I bought has no stones ,not even one,and it makes the sweetest hollow rice. I think it has different grades cos I bought it 23k for 50kg bag.
      Na local rice gat me now

    9. I love the taste of the our so call local rice. I have missed the taste for so long. Reduce the amount of water then you are good.

      Delete
  2. No way... I dont like it..It lacks quality which is typical of ''Made in Nigeria goods'' If the borders re-opens na back to foreign rice...It only fits for rice cereal cos you add plenty water at once...Na Tuwo you go eat at the end of the day...If the quality is worked on, I will surely eat the rice...

    5. Their are many good Nigerian rice, even by boarder closure, i had like two species of Nigerian rice coupled with foreign and i prefer the local.

  5. I have not eaten it since close of border.but I have eaten it before this year.
    It easily gets spoilt.
    I still buy foreign,you just can't compare except there is a new one which is like foreign.
    The last foreign I bought seems to be repackaged rice but still better than the local I know abeg.
    I just avoid too much water

  6. I prefer Nigerian rice that has no stones.
    1. It is organic
    2. It is not parboiled, meaning the nutrients are intact and natural
    3. It is most times cheaper.

    Nigerians do not value their thing. Everything abroad is worshiped and a lot of these girls
    find that as a bragging point or phantom status thing.
    In the USA to be precise, the rice that has those first two qualities listed above are labelled "organic" and are double the price of
    the processed ones that they added
    chemicals -vitamins/minerals.

    What a shame that Naija people loathe their products.

      No one is "looking down" on you and your likes.
      The thing is that one rather marvel at your ignorance of nutrition
      it is so gross!
      Now that there is paucity of abroad rice, how far?
      it is just like when I see certain Nigerian laugh at me for going to
      buy the one they nick-named mortuary (the frozen fish)
      氣氣氣氣
      Ladies do not know what fish oil does to their fertility and the harm
      the cholesterol in red meat (the one they hail) does to their bodies especially their heart.
      But there in the States, Canada and Europe, they sell fish oil tablets, yes tablets for TTC ladies.
      What a shame that Naija Sisis stereotype everything and tailor everything to "abroad" while they
      do not understand anything.

    3. Thank you, it is not so bad, there are some that are stone free. Most people don't know how to cook it,

    4. Anonymous 15:28: get your facts right too. Nigerian rice is extremely starchy reasons why rice are par boiled . You say organic? You do know that they use harmful fertilizers in growing the rice right? And the source or type of fertilisers used in nigeria isnt checked by the government. Organic means grown without fertilisers. It takes a long time to grow that's why it is expensive!!!

  7. I have eaten it and I can say that there are some good ones but there are some that is so bad with terrible smells. I will definitely not like to continue when the border is reopen

  10. The stones in the rice I bought last can build a mansion. It left a bad taste in my mouth for rice.
    Not like we are saying we won't patronise local but please let it be worth the patronage. How can rice be stony and still taste like chaff?
    The border should be opened already till they sort themselves out.

  15. Well since the closure of the border I have been eating made in Nigerian rice. There are actual good numbers or them without dirty or stone. The one I have been buying from my customer is a good one. Just have to boil and wash for three times before doing the main cooking.

  16. It taste better but you can hardly see one without small sand or little white stones.

    I guess the fault is from the retailers.I choose local all day until eternity.

  17. I have been sceptical about Nigerian Rice, Last month I wanted to buy a bag of rice, one woman in the market recommended one, Big Bull, I bought it, since I started eating rice, I have never seen one as good as this, no stone, it rises ehn, you go tire to add water, it is white. I will never eat foreign rice again oo, even if they open boarder.

    MOST OF THESE COUNTRIES DIDN'T MAKE IT WORK A DAY.

    JUST PUT THE RICE IN COLD WATER AND STIR ALL THE SAND WILL GO DOWN
    AND WHILE STIRRING, TAKE IT LITTLE BY LITTLE FROM UP AND PUT IN ANOTHER CONTAINER

    OR BETTER STILL, GET DE-STONED ONE.

    YES I AM SHOUTING.

    In case you don't know, its more healthier than the foreign one.

This is the only rice my mum has been eating for the past 2years and wben she prepares it I never chew any sand. She uses it to cook very nice jollof too. Dont add plenty water when cooking it. Prepare it like basmatic rice.

      You're on point.

  32. no one is talking about the price,.....
    to be frank, the price is damn too much, how can you buy a supposed bag of rice (naija) which by default already contains ⅛stones and granites at 18/19k??
    Nigeria no get future Abeg....

  33. I have only heard some have stones but haven't seen any. I love the Nigerian rice. It tastes better and doesn't take too long to cook. My grandma used to sell foreign rice in large quantities at Daleko market, and I grew up knowing qualities of rice. I can say this is way better than foreign ones. Maybe there are bad ones in the market, but I haven't come across any. Just complains from people. But we used to have bad foreign rice too. Those ones they mix with palm oil in the market.

  40. I bought Nigeria rice few weeks back, I asked the person selling over and over again if the rice has stones, he said No.Truly the rice doesn't have stones and it is sweet but I still prefer foreign rice. Lest I forget, the price is relatively high. I bought one custard bucket for #2,000.
    Lest hope that when they finally open the border, things will go back as before.

    Issa no ..no .no..no .no for me.I always hear Abakaliki Rice is good but I'm yet to see it.

    I remember the other time Sen.Shehu talked about it on twitter and I stated my opinion on'how stony and heavy in the mouth it is' and some people who disagreed with my opinion came for me..

    O Chim.

    For commercial purposes,its a no no especially when using it to make Fried Rice.kai!

    The few times I served our local rice my customers noticed and complained.I still source for foreign rice even though its pricey.

    Nothing wrong with patronising made in Nigeria products if we get it right.The only time I will stop making foreign rice is when I can no longer find it in the market/stores.

  43. Stella now that you have got the reviews of people concerning Nigeria Rice, can someone who is an expert in cooking the rice show the masses how it is done.

    Remember when Buhari said no to foreign clothes in 1985, now Nigerians are flaunting curves in designs and wooing the world.

    Any videos of Nigeria Rice cooking instructions Please.

  44. I think the Nigerian rice is in grades. There's the one with stone and the one without stones which is more expensive. Personally, if I can have regular access to the one without stone, I'll still prefer it to foreign. I have some in my kitchen presently but I can't buy it in large quantity though, dunno how durable it is. However, if I want to cook the one I know visitors will it, I'd rather use foreign rice to be on a safe side.

  57. If you eat the one from Arondizuogu!! Choi no stones, really nice, with jamaican, fried or jollof rice, we stopped eating foreign rice long before the border closure, if we cook foreign rice just know it was a gift. We hated it at first till my mum forced everyone into eating it, when we finished it and started cooking the foreign rice, it tasted somehow, I thought it was just my head playing pranks till my brother complained and asked my mum when will our local rice be available.

    The trick to cooking it is less water, just like your basmati rice. No par boiling, pre wash with hot water instead. If yours has stones, fill it with cold water stir with a stick and scoop the rice from the top, reduce the water while scooping till you get to the bottom, you'll feel the sand and pebbles at the bottom, that's the tricky part, if you not sure about the last part just throw it away. And also it doesn't take time to cook, so dont boil it like you cooking beans, 15-20 min and your rice is ready.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Who said Nigerian rice is not good. Please go to the market and get good ones. Non sticky, good for jellof rice. A colleague introduced me to it early this year and we have been enjoying it. It's just that I've forgotten the name. I poured it inside a big bucket with cover and used the bag as waste bin.

    ReplyDelete
  59. It is a shame that an opportunity for self reliance is being dragged down by producers who care nothing about quality. Isn't there a standards council in Nigeria to ensure that there is a quality standard to all products produced in the country. Rice with stones should not be on the market in 2019. Are they hulking the rice in a quarry? This is a valuable opportunity for self reliance and economy building producers should not be slacking off and feel comfortable to put out substandard products.

  60. was never a fan of foreign rice until i gained admission at nsukka ,it is stone free and non sticky you can not differentiate between foreign rice and local rice ,the sellers say adani rice is better
