Stuffed Cornbread

Otak Stuffed Cornbread

Cornmeal is made by grinding corn kernels into a coarse powder and you can buy this from most supermarkets and Indian grocery shops. Eating cornmeal offers some health benefits because it is a source of essential nutrients and fibre. You can replace otak with any kind of stuffing; for example, leftover cooked meats and vegetables. You can also make this cornbread without a stuffing!
