How to make Crispy garlic Lotus stem

  1. Clean, peel and slice lotus stems thinly and immediately dust with a mix of corn flour and salt and pepper. Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a deep pan and fry the coated lotus stem slices on high heat. Fry in convenient sized batches and drain on tissue paper.
  3. Meanwhile heat 2 tsp oil in a separate pan, fry the garlic, chilli and ginger briefly, take the pan off heat and add five spice powder and chopped green onions.
  4. Drain the fried lotus stem and immediately toss with the garlic mix, toss and serve at once.

My Tip:

Toss the sliced lotus stems in a bit of vinegar to make them more crisp and tangy.
