Instructions

  1. Stuff lotus roots

    • Cut 1 inch from one end of the lotus root and save this part as a “lid”.  
    • Carefully stuff all tubes of the lotus root with soaked glutinous rice, using a chopstick to push the rice in. 
    •  After you have stuffed the lotus root, use 4 toothpicks or bamboo skewers to fasten the “lid” to the lotus root.


  2. Boil brown sugar and lotus root

    • In a pot of boiling water, stir in the brown sugar until it has dissolved. 
    • Add lotus root into the pot, then simmer for 20 minutes.  
    • Flip the lotus root. The braising should be done at low heat for about 4 hours. 
    • Remove lotus root from pot and let it cool on a chopping board. 
    • Slice lotus root to even 0.8cm slices and place it on a serving plate.
