Dried Lotus Root 115g


Lotus root, as the name implies, is the root of the lotus flower, which is an aquatic plant of the Nelumbonaceae family. The lotus flower has been a powerful element of numerous Asian countries for thousands of years. It is also a stunningly beautiful flower that embeds its roots in the bottom of the lake, stream, river, etc. while the pad and the emerging flower float on top of the water. They are aquatic perennials, and the seeds can germinate long after falling dormant. A seed more than 1,300 years old was once brought “back from the dead” and flowered in a laboratory. The lotus root (or rhizome) is a long, woody object that attaches to the bottom of its habitat and can stretch up to 4 feet. It can be washed, sliced, and then prepared. It is frequently used as a vegetable in Asian cuisines within soups, or it can be deep-fried, stir-fried, braised, or cooked in other interesting ways. It is also used in the natural or powdered form in traditional herbal medicine. It is commonly pickled as snacks and is included in dishes with prawns, or as salad toppings because of the tangy and slightly sweet taste, particularly after being pickled. It has the texture of a potato and tastes slightly like coconuts before any extra flavoring is added.
