What is Piri Piri?
Piri Piri is the name used in Portuguese and a number of African languages to describe the African bird’s-eye chilli. Piri Piri which translate to ‘pepper-pepper’ is one of the best known spices and is derived from the tiny chilli peppers that grow in Angola, Uganda, Malawi, South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, the tropical forests of South Sudan & the highlands of Ethiopia. It was introduced to Goa, India by the Portuguese. Blended with a variety of other herbs and spices which results in the range of delicious sauces that we use to marinade and baste our chicken pieces, giving you our fantastically saucy and succulent mouth-watering Rio’s Piri Piri taste.
