How to make Jollof Recipe by Jason Obeng?

Finely slice onion and cut red pepper into strips
Blend tomatoes in a blender
In a large pot on a medium heat, heat up oil (I use rapeseed oil, but sunflower or olive oil can also work)
Put the 10 table spoons of oil in a pan and start to heat up on a medium heat
Add onions and start to stir until they are slightly golden
Once onions are slightly golden add the blended tomatoes and then a ¼ cup of water
Stir all contents and then bring to boil
Then add the sliced red peppers, 2 tea spoons of salt, black pepper, ground ginger, curry powder and mixed herb, stir altogether and bring to boil.
Once it is boiling add rice and 1 cup of water, stir and then reduce heat to minimum
Make sure you cover pot with tin foil and the lid of the pot
Stir every 10mins until rice is cooked
