   How to cook Nigerian Jollof Rice

The Nigerian rice recipe discussed here is the classic Nigerian Jollof Rice prepared at parties. This is the most popular Nigerian rice recipe. This is why you will always see it in parties. It is quite easy to prepare if you follow the simple steps.



Ingredients

  • 3¾ cups (750g) long grain parboiled rice
  • 2-3 cups Tomato Stew
  • Chicken (whole chicken, drumsticks or chicken breast)
  • Pepper and salt (to taste)
  • 2 medium onions
  • 3 Knorr cubes
  • 2 teaspoons thyme
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder (Nigerian curry powder)

Before you cook Jollof Rice

  1. Prepare the tomato stew. Visit the Tomato Stew page for details on how to do that. It is advisable to prepare tomato stew before hand and keep in the freezer. This is so that whenever you want to cook any jollof rice related dish, it is just a matter of adding it to your cooking.
  2. If you will use whole chicken then wash and cut it into pieces. Cook with the thyme, Knorr cubes and 2 bulbs of onions (chopped). The cooking time depends on the type of chicken. The rooster or cockerel cooks much faster than the hen but the hen is definitely tastier. When done, grill it in an oven. You may also fry it. This is to give it a golden look which is more presentable especially if you have guests for dinner.
  3. Parboil the rice using the method detailed in parboiling rice for cooking jollof rice. Rinse the parboiled rice and put in a sieve to drain.

Cooking Directions

  1. Pour the chicken stock and the tomato stew into a sizeable pot and leave to boil.
  2. Add the drained parboiled rice, curry powder, salt and pepper to taste. The water level should be the same level of the rice. This is to ensure that all the water dries up by the time the rice is cooked.
  3. Cover the pot and leave to cook on low to medium heat. This way the rice does not burn before the water dries up.
If you parboiled the rice as described at parboiling rice for cooking jollof rice, the rice should be done by the time the water is dry. Taste to confirm. If not, you will need to add more water and reduce the heat to prevent burning. Keep cooking till done.


Serve with Peppered Fish, Fried Plantains, Nigerian Moi Moi, Nigerian Salad or Coleslaw.
You can spice up this recipe by adding 2 well known vegetables to arrive at what we refer to as Mixed Vegetables Jollof Rice.

How to Take Screenshots in Windows 10



A screenshot is an image taken of whatever’s on your screen. Today we’re going to show you how to take a screenshot in Windows.
You can take a screenshot on just about any platform, and taking screenshots in Windows is no different. It has a built-in option that works great for basic tasks, but many third-party programs offer more ease of use and features. In this article I’ll show you a few different ways to take a screenshot in Windows 10.

Method One: Take Quick Screenshots with Print Screen (PrtScn)

  1. Press the PrtScn button to copy the screen to the clipboard
  2. Press the Windows+PrtScn buttons on your keyboard to save the screen to a file
  3. Use the built-in Snipping Tool
  4. Use the Game Bar in Windows 10
The Print Screen button on your keyboard can take a screenshot and save it as a file, take a screenshot without saving it as a file, or take a screenshot of only one window (instead of the whole screen). The print screen button may be labeled as “PrtScn,” “PrntScrn,” “Print Scr,” or something similar. On most keyboards, the button is usually found between F12 and Scroll Lock. On laptop keyboards, you may have to press the “Function” or “Fn” key to access the Print Screen feature. When you press the key, it will look like nothing happened, but the screenshot has been saved to your clipboard.

To Save Your Screenshot as a File

Press the “Windows logo key + PrtScn.” If you’re using a tablet, press the “Windows logo button + volume down button.” On some laptops and other devices, you may need to press the “Windows logo key + Ctrl + PrtScn” or “Windows logo key + Fn + PrtScn” keys instead. Check your laptop’s manual for more information.
The screen will dim for a moment, and you will see the screenshot appear as a file in a folder entitled “Screenshots”, inside your default “Pictures” folder. The screenshot is automatically labeled with a number.
You will only see your screen dim if you have the “Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing” turned on in your visual effects settings (System > Advanced system settings > Click the Advanced tab > Click Settings under Performance section).

To Take a Screenshot Without Saving

Press the “PrtScn” key. A screenshot of your display is now copied to the clipboard. Open your favorite image editor, word processor, or other program you want to use the image in. Choose Edit > Paste to paste the screenshot wherever you like. The dimensions of the image will be the same as your desktop resolution. Note: On some laptops and other devices, you may need to press the “Alt + Fn + PrtScn” keys instead. Check your laptop’s manual for more information.

To Take a Screenshot of Only One Window

Click on the title bar of the window that you want to capture. Press “Alt + PrtScn”. A screenshot of your currently active window will be copied to the clipboard, just as in the last section. Paste it into your favorite image editor or document editor. Note: On some laptops and other devices, you may need to press the “Alt + Fn + PrtScn” keys instead. Check your laptop’s manual for more information.

To Take a Screenshot of Part of Your Screen

Press “Windows + Shift + S”. Your screen will appear grayed out and your mouse cursor will change. Click and drag on your screen to select the part of your screen you want to capture. A screenshot of the screen region you selected will be copied to your clipboard. You can paste it in any application by selecting Edit > Paste or pressing Ctrl + V, just as you’d paste a full-screen shortcut taken with the Print Screen key.
This only works in Windows 10’s Creators Update. On older versions of Windows, this shortcut is part of Microsoft’s OneNote application. With the Creators Update, Microsoft integrated this shortcut into Windows 10 itself.

Method Two: Take More Flexible Screenshots with Snipping Tool

The Snipping tool has been a part of the Windows for long time. This tool was first included in Windows Vista, and never got any new features apart from few bug fixes. Snipping tool can take screenshots of an open window, rectangular area, a free-form area, or the entire screen. You can annotate your snips with different colored pens or a highlighter, save it as an image or MHTML file, or email it to a friend.
Snipping Tool in Windows Vista, 7, and 8 has one limitation: it can’t capture screenshots that involve mouse movements. To capture something that involves mouse movement, like pop-up menus and tooltips, you will have to use the Print Screen method.
In Windows 10, Snipping Tool has a new “Delay” option, which will allow you to capture screenshots pop-up menus and tooltips. Open the Snipping Tool app and click Delay. From the drop-down list, click on the number of seconds you’d like to wait until your screenshot is taken.
Now choose the type of snip you want to make by clicking the arrow next to “New.” You can choose from one of four types of snip: free-form, rectangular, window, and full-screen.
Unlike a regular snip, the screen will not immediately fade out. Instead, you will have between 1–5 seconds, depending on the delay you chose, to set up your screenshots. You can use this time to open that pop-up menu or tooltip you want to capture. Once your seconds have passed, the screen will freeze and fade out so you can create your snip. If you chose window or full-screen, it will just capture the snip immediately.

Method Three: Use Keyboard Shortcuts with Game Bar in Windows 10

Windows 10 ships with game DVR capabilities to record gameplay footage and take screenshots of Windows PC games. The Game Bar generates screenshots in PNG format, and saves them in “C:\Users\[your username]\Videos\Captures.” Before you start using the Game Bar, launch the Xbox app that came with Windows 10 open its settings. Under “Game DVR”, toggle “Take screenshots using Game DVR,” and assign whatever keyboard shortcuts you want.
When you want to take a screenshot, use that keyboard combination (“Windows key + G” by default) and click or tap on the “Yes, this is a game” box if prompted. Now press the “Camera icon” or “Win + Alt + PrtScn” to take a screenshot. Note: The keyboard shortcut will only work if you have previously checked the “Yes, this is a game” box for this specific game. You will see a notification letting you know “Screenshot saved.” If you click or tap on the notification, it will open to “Xbox > Game DVR > On this PC” to see it.

Method Four: Take More Powerful Screenshots the Easy Way with Snagit

Windows_10
All of Windows’ built-in methods have their their own pros and cons. If you take a lot of screenshots and want more flexibility than the built-in tools offer, though, a third-party tool is your best option.

If you don’t mind spending a few dollars, Snagit by Techsmith is a top-notch tool that makes taking screenshots easy, has tons of features that let you target specific windows, take region snapshots, and even capture the full text of scrolling windows like web pages.
You can take short videos if you want, annotate screenshots, draw arrows and shapes, and pretty much anything you can imagine a screenshot tool should be able to do. It’s a great tool that we definitely recommend, especially if you need to take a lot of screenshots.
There’s a free trial that you can download to check it out before bothering to spend money on it. Once you try it, it’ll be hard to go back to Windows’ barebones tools.

Sometimes navigating and uploading a TDS return on the TRACES portal can be difficult for some of the taxpayers. Complying with the data procedure too has been found tedious by many. Therefore, to ease the process the income tax department has provided for uploading the return on their own website, which we cover in detail in this article.
  1. Prerequisites for uploading TDS returns
Before you start uploading the return, you must ensure the following.
  • You must hold a valid TAN and it should be registered for e-filing
  • Your TDS statements should be prepared using Return Preparation Utility (RPU) and validated using File Validation Utility (FVU)
  • You can prepare your returns in an easy manner using ClearTDS
  • You should have a valid DSC registered for e-filing if you wish to upload using DSC
  • The principal contact’s bank account or demat account details should be provided or the principal contact’s PAN should be linked with Aadhar if you wish to upload using EVC
  1. How to upload TDS statements on income tax portal

Here is a step-by-step guide on uploading TDS statements on the income tax website:
Step 1: Go to http://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/ and click on ‘Login Here’.

Step 2: Enter your login credentials and click on ‘Login’. Your user ID will be your TAN.

Note that TDS statements can be uploaded only from FY 2010-11 and only regular statements can be uploaded on the income tax website.
Step 5: The returns can be validated through the following modes:
Step 5a: Validate using DSC or Digital Signature Certificate.
The TDS statements can be uploaded using DSC. To upload using DSC, first upload the TDS zip file and also attach the digital signature file. Then, click on Upload.

How to Use Fuliza, Safaricom’s Overdraft Facility; Service Fees and Repayment Process



During the announcement of Safaricom’s Half Year results in November 2018, Safaricom made a series of announcements, including the launch of an overdraft facility dubbed Fuliza. The product has since gone live with fanfare owing to its offerings.
To reiterate, Fuliza is more of an Okoa Jahazi for M-PESA services, specifically Lipa Na M-PESA products – Pay Bill and Buy Goods, and sending money. In essence, Fuliza complements M-Shwari – but it is not a loan service as the latter offers credit to M-PESA users that should be repaid after 30 days.
Who qualifies for Fuliza

Similar to M-Shwari, Fuliza is offered by Safaricom in partnership with the Commercial Bank of Africa (CBA). It is available for all M-PESA users, but you must have been using the mobile wallet for more than 6 months. Also, similar to M-Shwari loan limits, the overdraft facility’s limit is based on a user’s transactions profile.
“Our continued collaboration with Safaricom aims to drive financial inclusion in a digital economy. With our technological innovation and responsible lending principles, we will advertently bring more people into the financial system, encourage more transactions, more savings and, ultimately achieve stronger economic growth,” says Isaac Awuondo, CBA Group Managing Director.
The service can be accessed by hitting *234#, which should also give users their overdraft limits. It is available on STK and mySafaricom app.
Differences from M-Shwari
As mentioned, Fuliza is not a loan product.
Once activated via USSD code, it automatically kicks if they fall short of funds when using Lipa Na M-PESA services or sending cash. Users, however, cannot withdraw from Fuliza.
Service fees and interest
Besides the regular M-PESA transaction fees, Fuliza attracts a 1% access fee and maintenance charges on the outstanding balance as shown below:
BandTariffPromotional Tariff for 30 day from launch
0-100One-time fee of KES 2One-time fee of KES 0
101-500KES 5 per day
501-1000KES 10 per day
1001-1500KES 20 per day
1501-2500KES 25 per day
2501-70000KES 30 per day
Repayment
The overdrawn funds will automatically be subtracted as soon as a user deposits funds to their M-PESA wallet. You will still be able to access the service as payment is regularized. Say your limit is 1000 shillings, and you deposit 500 shillings to your account after using Fuliza (plus interest); you can still overdraw the remainder (KES 500 or less) until the limit is reached again.

Some people have asked if they can get money reversed if they send/pay to a wrong number or till and had used the overdraft. Safaricom says that the reversal process goes into effect if the wrong recipient has not used the money. Similar to conventional reversal processes, transaction fees will not be reimbursed.
Finally, users cannot access the Fuliza limits if they have an unpaid balance after day 30 but can be restored upon clearing the balance.
