Originally from the state of Bahia in the northeast of the country. The dish evolved during the Colonial times when the Portuguese brought coconuts to the country. They planted the coconut trees along the coast to replace the wood that was taken. The African slaves also introduced palm oil to the culinary mix. It is served year round and Brazilians have been making it for at least 300 years.
