The spicy and traditional Otah heats up my kitchen here on Revv Eats.

Otah is a dish with roots from the Malay and Peranakan community. There is a a number of variations on the ingredients and cooking methods , but overall they have one thing inn common, most people love eating this spicy dish! One of the usual main ingredient is Spanish Mackerel, but Prawns have also been used in cooking up this dish. We thought we would give all of you the opportunity to try out this dish yourself, as you can see from our video and the ingredients below, it's really not that hard a dish to prepare.
