Fried Lotus Root with Pork - delicious pork & shiitake mushroom mixture sandwiched between lotus root and deep-fried until crunchy. It's one of my favorite ways to enjoy lotus root growing up!
Gather all the ingredients. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for Seasonings.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan/frying pan, add all the ingredients for Sauce and cook on medium-low heat. In a small bowl, combine corn starch and water and mix well. When the sauce is simmering, add corn starch mixture (make sure it’s completely mixed) in the pan and mix quickly and thoroughly. Turn off the heat and set aside until you are done with deep frying.
