However, some of these foods are being used to describe people or things considered worthless.
Usually, people verbally abuse others with such foods.
The three foods, Angwa Moo (an Akan word which translates as "oiled rice"), Banku and Gari and Beans are seen or heard by people in an argument and sometimes in conversations.
Angwa Moo (oiled rice) is unlike fried rice in which one cooks the rice before frying. Oiled rice is prepared by first frying the onion in oil, then adding water after the onions have browned. This will give the rice a different fragrance.
The rice is then cooked in the water-oil mixture to give the rice an oily feel when ready. It may be cooked with vegetables or salted beef, to add to your taste. It is mostly served with earthenware-ground pepper, with either tinned sardines or fried eggs complementing it.

How do people use Angwa Moo as an insult?
Basically, some people don't value Angwa Mo as food despite it being many people's favorite.
One can insult the other that he or she is as foolish as 'Angwa Moo'.
Banku is a slightly fermented cooked mixture of corn-dough and cassava-dough made into single serving balls.
It is preferred by the people of the Ewe people, the Fante and the Ga-Adangbe people. It is also eaten across other regions in Ghana.
