Palusami Recipe, The Fijian Way

If you are not familiar with Palusami, it is a traditional dish of some of the Pacific islands, especially Fiji and Samoa. You can substitute the ingredients to suit whatever is available in your area. So instead of taro leaves, you can use spinnach or silver beet. And if you don't like corned beef, try minced beef or lamb instead.

As fresh meat is hard to get and expensive in Fiji, tins of corned beef are often will find this used in not only Palusami, but many of the curry dishes as well. An unopened can will store well in the heat, it's cheap, and easily transportable. No wonder it is so popular in Fiji.
