Fried Lotus Root With Spring Onion


We did speak at length about vegetarian dishes the last time, remember (Spicy Thai Style Eggplant)? Of course, we sure did, undeniably (Chilli Stir Fried Potato). What shall we then speak about today because its obviously another vegetarian dish today. Would you like to help me out for further rekindling or sparking up another interesting vegetarianism theory (Moor Kolambu/Yogurt Curry) or shall I just go with the flow on what I think it should potentially be? Tricky as well because I'm kinda not sure myself or maybe we shall stick to the gun of back trailing towards fried dishes, thrown in with, let's see, how far we can head together. Honestly, I quite like, I rather say like because using the same word love all the time can be so mundane and boring like our life which does hit high and low, back and forth, so, let me repeat myself again, I  quite like lotus root. Potentially, lotus root is a great root veggie for Chinese dishes mostly (Old Cucumber Soup Vegetarian & Potato Bok Choy Soup). I doubt if lotus root will do a good job for Indian dishes (Tapioca Poriyal & Curry Leaves Potato Chips), or maybe we Indians are not accustomed to lotus root for our cooking (Potato Green Peas Curry, Stir Fried Vegetarian Mutton & Cauliflower Fritters). Either or neither nor, popularity of lotus root does also take place for Japanese cuisine (Japanese Lotus Root Soup).  

Reasonably priced, lotus root contains high fibre but it can be quite subtle in taste. Regardless, lotus root is a fantastic addition when cooked with other ingredients for stir fries and soups. Of course, where gave we now headed to after this long winded lotus root story of mine? Obviously, back to chips (Crispy Fried Kai Lan & Crispy Fried Bitter Gourd) and none other. An improvised version compared to the previous Fried Lotus Root Chips, its a minimalist Fried Lotus Root Spring Onion Chips. Where did I pluck this recipe from, are you now asking me? From my brain. My own brain. Just like that, recipe popped up. Thinly sliced lotus root, sliced spring onion, turmeric power, a tiny bit of sugar and salt, all gently stirred together, prior to frying till utter crispiness. Super crunchy (Fried Mushroom Rolls & Fried Okra), crispy Fried Lotus Root Spring Onion can be your snack, or accompanied for a rice meal (Crispy Fried Japanese Tofu). Take care foodies, we shall meet again.  

 Ingredients
1 stick  of lotus root - scrape/remove skin and slice as thin as possible. Rinse and pat dry. 
A pinch of turmeric powder
3 sprigs spring onion - cut/slice into 1/2 inch length
A little sugar 
Salt (if needed)

Method
Combine all the ingredients together.
Deep fry in batches and drain over kitchen towel.
Cool down and store in air tight container. 
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support is my pride. Thank you everyone.

  12. Hi Nava, Honestly speaking I quite like this fried lotus root with spring onion. It's new to me but sounds and looks interesting. I like lotus root and usually cook it with soup, braised, stew or stir fried but have yet to try your deep fried version. Will give this a try too as it looks delectable too. Thanks for sharing, Nava and regards :)
