The meaning piri-piri in Oxford Dictionary of English, depicts piri-piri as a foreign word meaning “a very hot sauce made with red chilli peppers”. Piri-piri, peri-peri or peli-peli is the name used in Portuguese and a number of African languages to describe the African bird’s-eye chili. The variations in spelling derive from the various pronunciations of the word in different parts of Africa.The correct spelling in Portuguese is ‘piri-piri’.

The name ‘peri peri’ also refer to the spicy sauces made with the pepper. In Portuguese the chilli and the sauce itself is known as ‘piri-piri’. Another belief is that thes name is from Swahili – ‘piri-piri’ means ‘pepper-pepper’ – and has morphed into several iterations, including ‘pili-pili’ and ‘peri-peri’.
