Dear friends, I believe that you all have tasted the potato chips! Have you ever tasted the Lotus Roots Chips ? This is a very easy and simple snack...
朋友们,我相信您都曾嚐过薯条!您可否也曾嚐过莲藕片呢 ? 这是非常简单的小食。。。

In Korea, we have Lotus Flower Festival at Siheung Lotus Flower Theme Park in Siheung,Kyonggi Province every year ...
Lotus roots are commonly used in Korean cuisine, we do have Lotus tea,lotus pancake flour etc.

Lotus rootlets are often pickled with rice vinegar, sugar, chili and/or garlic. It has a crunchy texture with sweet-tangy flavours. In Asian cuisine, it is popular with salad, prawnssesame oil and/or coriander leaves. Lotus roots have been found to be rich in dietary fibervitamin Cpotassiumthiaminriboflavinvitamin B6phosphorus,copper, and manganese, while very low in saturated fat.
The stamens can be dried and made into a fragrant herbal tea called liánhuā cha (蓮花) in Chinese, or (particularly in Vietnam) used to impart a scent to tea leaves. This Vietnamese lotus tea is called trà senchè sen, or chè ướp sen. The lotus seeds or nuts (called liánzĭ, 蓮子; or xiān liánzĭ, 鲜莲子, in Chinese) are quite versatile, and can be eaten raw or dried and popped like popcornphool makhana. They can also be boiled until soft and made into a paste, or boiled with dried longans and rock sugar to make a tong sui (sweet soup). Combined with sugar, lotus seed paste becomes one of the most common ingredients used in pastries such asmooncakesdaifuku, and rice flour pudding
