Indigenous Africans introduced the Portuguese to the African Bird’s Eye Chilli. The locals called this fiery little chilli Pili-Pili, which means Pepper-Pepper in Swahili.
‘Peri- Peri’ was the best stab the explorers could make at pronouncing Pili-Pili, so Peri-Peri it became. They immediately added it to their cooking and it soon became an integral part of their lives. The women found that Peri-Peri aroused passion in their men and were delighted that something so small could prove so satisfying.
