Lotus Root Fries

Soooo.....yeah, I've been kind of MIA? Sorry about that! Last week I was grocery shopping (exciting stuff is happening around here—hence the absence!) and I saw someone buying lotus root. I've never seen or heard of it. So I asked the person buying it few questions. She told me that she is planning to use it in Asian food. So I bought one. I wasn't really sure what to do with it but I decided to cut it open and see what i'm up against. It reminds of potato, except crunchier. One thing i've learned from watching countless hours of TV is that everything tastes good fried...so I made fries. This vegetable is pretty! I mean look!

 right??? I dipped them in flour (add salt and pepper to the flour for some taste) and fried for few minutes until golden brown. Sprinkle with some lemon juice and chaat masala (if you don't have any then salt, pepper and garlic would work too). Sprinkle some parsley and enjoy!! I recommend some ice cold beer and burger.  But by the time I got the beer, the fries were gone...so yeah Enjoy!


  1. That looks delicious. I clearly need to stretch my culinary repertoire:)
