I love lotus roots! Not only in the popular Cantonese style soup, but also simply stir-fried. I love the crispy texture of lotus roots in stir-fries - neverthless, the lotus root is not entirely flavourful in stir-fries, hence you can use strongly flavoured condiments like today's minced taucu (yellow bean paste). For today's feature, I fried the lotus roots with some pork in garlic and minced taucu. Very simple. Other variations include adding Nam Yu (red bean curd paste) as the main condiment.
