Palaver sauce


Palaver sauce is a type of stew widely eaten in West Africa. The word palaver comes from the Portuguese language and means a talk, lengthy debate or quarrel. It is unclear how this led to the name of the stew. One theory is that when the stew was first made, with long, ropey greens, people would start quarrels by slapping each other with the greens from their stew. Another, is that the spices used in the stew mingle together like raised voices in an argument. The dish has regional variations and can contain beef, fish, cassava, taro leaves, and palm oil. It is served with boiled rice, potatoes, or yams.
