Tips

To make this dish, we must choose the fresh and tender lotus root which has just come into the market. Only the thin and crisp part with the tip should be taken. The color should be white and translucent. When we look at it, we should have enough water and the skin should be thin enough to appear or not. It is the best and tenderest lotus root which is suitable for cold dressing.
