Vaho or baho is a mix of meat, green plantains and yuca cooked in banana leaves. It is a traditional Nicaraguan dish originated from the mix of cultures between the indigenous, mestizos and Afro-Nicaraguans of the country.
In Nicaraguan Spanish and some other dialects, the name is pronounced as vajo or bajo . There is some controversy as to whether the correct spelling is vaho, baho, vajo or bajo.
Vaho is served with curtido, a cabbage and tomato salad made with vinegar and lemon/lime juice. The salad tops the meat, yuca and plantains. It is a traditional Sunday dish.
