Iresi eyin is one of the Yoruba versions of the popular jollof rice dish. 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.
