How to prepare Angwa Mo

How To Prepare Angwa Mo. Braised rice is a Ghanaian style of cooking rice. In the Akan language, it is known as angwa moo, which means “oil rice,” as well as omɔ kɛ fɔ (omor ker for) in the Ga language.

It is made with a few ingredients and is usually served with some vegetables and protein such as chicken or pork to round out the meal.

It’s usually eaten as a main course with green pepper or shito sauce and fried eggs, omelets, or sardines.

 

Salted beef used in this recipe is often used in flavoring many Ghanaian dishes. It is usually pink in color due to the inclusion of food dye.

The inclusion of spices into the curing process of the meat, gives the meat a musky and aromatic taste.

Tolo beef is also used in the preparation of stews and soups or jollof rice.
