Palava sauce is a Ghanaian vegetable stew made from Nkontomire (cocoyam leaves) or spinach leaves and and Akatoa (melon seeds) with tomato, hot peppers, onions, other spices, fish, seafood and meat base. Palava sauce is mostly eaten with rice or ampesie (boiled starchy roots like yams, cassava, kooko/taro or plantains) in Ghana. Palava sauce stew is also eaten in other West African countries like Liberia and also known as Egusi soup in Nigeria and Cameroon.
