West African favourite dish: Palava sauce (spinach, prawns and fish stew)
POSTED ON JUNE 28, 2014
Recently I’ve been experimenting with the World cuisine especially dishes from West Africa. Everybody is always talking about jollow rice – popular dish in many parts of West Africa. It is so popular that everybody is fighting as to where this dish originated from. Some say it is Nigerian, some Ghanaian and some Sierra Leonean. I think this is very similar with the Palava sauce.
There are many different ways to cool Palava. This is made with groundnuts, instead of egusi, in a Sierra Leone style. It is extremely delicious and very popular dish in my household.
