1. Chop lotus root into pieces. And put them into boiling water for around 3 minutes. Then drain them.
2. Heat a little oil in the pan. Put the drained lotus root pieces in the pan. Stir fry a little.
3. Add in 1 tsp dark soy sauce, 2 tsp vinegar, 3 tsp sugar, 1 tsp salt, 2 or 3 tsp water. Stir fry evenly for 2 minutes or so.
4. After each lotus piece coated with sauce, add in a little starchy water. Quick stir fry a little. You can sprinkle some chopped green onion if you like.
Some people like the sweet and sour taste, but some don’t. I think it’s also a good appetizer.
