Last year, the “menu” for the new year our family has deep fried lotus root, It is spontaneous and accidental from a lotus root had been survived after stewed chicken soup. I had mistakenly thought that I had to record its recipe in detail, but the morning I was accessed Facebook to show off photos on this dish made by my kids yesterday afternoon, even I was sure people spell “Table of Contents”. It turned out that there has never been this recipe.
By this time I can not be lazy anymore.
Lotus root is the root of the tree (flowers) Lotus, are harvested in winter. Small lotus leaf appears in the spring, with summer terrace (from which comes the delicious lotus tea kettle), lotus appear in autumn dry weather hydrophilic (😉 lotus salad). Hardest winter, one has to take a dip in the pond to get up to his lotus root processing into delicious dishes.
