LOTUS CHIPS

LOTUS CHIPS

1. Choose a firm, dry lotus root without any blemishes and immediately wrap in paper towel at home. Store in your fridge until you use it.
2. Peel the lotus root and trim both ends. When done, thinly slice your lotus root into 1/8-inch thick pieces. Then, soak your lotus root slices in a bowl filled with 2 cups of cold water and a tablespoon of rice vinegar for 5-10 minutes.
3. Drain and pat dry very well before frying. In a pan with a cooking oil, fry until browned and crisp, flipping over once. Place them on a paper towel and sprinkle with sea salt.
