Welcome To Malaysia - The Land Of Dubious Records.
Using 60kg of fish, 16kg of spices and 24kg of coconut milk, Johor made it to the Malaysia Book of Records yesterday with the longest "otak-otak" measuring 200 metres.
Over 1,000 coconut leaves and 2,400 coconut leaf veins were used as the sheath.
Otak-otak is a local dish made from fish fillet mixed with spices and coconut milk. It is wrapped in coconut leaves and cooked either by grilling or steaming.
The 200-metre-long food was made in conjunction with the launch of the "Bulan Citrarasa Malaysia" festival of savouring Malaysian delights by Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor at Dangga Bay here.
The month-long festival, on the theme "Let's Eat" to introduce local dishes to foreign tourists, will end in Kota Baharu.
