Ever wondered how else you could use lotus root besides the usual Lotus Root & Pork Rib Soup?

 

This Stuffed Lotus Root recipe is the perfect Lunar New Year snack. Between thin slices of juicy lotus root, flavourfully marinated minced pork is sandwiched. Both then coated and deep fried in a delicious, crunchy batter!

 

An explosion of flavour and crunch with every bite; have it as a side dish for any CNY meal! Or maybe just with a drink or two.
