  • Heat 4 tbsp of oil and when heated, fry the spices until fragrant and becomes a thick paste. Let is cool down first before adding only 1/2 of the fried spices in the fish paste and mixing all up together. Also add salt to taste. Keep the other half for the dipping sauce to be made later.

    Put one daun kaduk/betel on top of one piece of banana leave. Add about 1 tbsp of the fish paste on top.

    Gently pack the fish paste into the banana leaves by folding/rolling into a flat piece.
    Secure both edges with a toothpick.
    Do the same to the rest of the fish paste.

    On a heated flat non-stick pan, put the fish paste wrapped in banana leaves on top. Let it cook until the leaves are brown and then turn over the other side to cook.

    To the other half of the fried spices, add 1/2 tbsp sugar, salt to taste and juice of one lime. Mix and stir all together to be served with the otak-otak.
