15 ingredients

This recipe was featured on week 42 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Burkina Faso is my 42nd stop. Unless otherwise noted, my Travel by Stove recipes are taken from authentic or traditional sources, and this recipe has been posted without any alternations or additions to the ingredients. This rice dish is called "fat rice" because of the amount of oil used. You can probably get away with cutting back on it.
