Stir Fry Lotus Root Japanese Style

The current heatwave really beat me in sitting down in front of computer. Hence the close to 3weeks hiatus. Don't get me wrong, I still cook and bake, did some photo taking too, but just no interest to blog, no inspiration whatsoever. I guess my brain is overheating LOL
Occasional rain did some remedy to certain extent but quickly the heat and humid weather came back
It was raining a little just now, still quite cooling now, I quickly sit down in front of computer. So many backlogs, must start now haha..

Okay, this is a simple yet delicious dish. I like. Especially since I love lotus root :)
In Japanese, this dish is called Renkon no Kinpira

Recipe by J@Feasttotheworld

What you need:

350g fresh lotus root
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 large red chilli, chopped (I didn't have any so I skipped)
1 tbsp sake
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp soya sauce
1/2 tbsp mirin
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds (I skipped)

  1. Peel lotus root and thinly sliced. Soak in a bowl of water with white vinegar for 5mins to remove any bitterness. Drain and wipe dry
  2. Heat sesame oil over medium heat in a pan. Stir fry lotus root for 1min until it turns translucent
  3. Add in chilli (if using), sake, sugar, soya sauce, mirin. Simmer for about 3mins until the liquid turns sticky. Transfer into a serving plate and sprinkle sesame seeds over it (if using)

Simple and fuss free. Nice eaten with a bowl of hot fluffy rice :)
