Superkanja may be Gambia's super soup, but the name is probably a combination of Portuguese and West African words. Sopa, the Portuguese word for soup; like palaver a word left over from the early days of Portuguese exploration of the African coast. Kanja, evidently a West African word for okra. (?) Superkanja is also called supa kanja, supakanja and kanjadaa.

bridge, west africa
