  • So that the onion does not taste too strong, let it rest for 10 minutes in cold water before mixing it with the other ingredients.

Additional information

We must also emphasize that the pallar is a food that is grown in the north of Peru and that its name as we know it today comes from the Mochica paxller and that in Quechua it was also called pallar.

During the time of viceroyalty it was exported to the rest of the countries of the continent and to Europe. In other parts of the world it is also known by the name of Lima Beans due to the name that appeared on the boxes as the place of origin.
