Stir Fry Lotus Root

Dah lama aku teringin nk mkn lotus root tp masalahnya aku tak tau cmner nk masak. ni seme gara2 suka sgt tengok rancangn masakan kt tv. Kna plak tengok programme form china & taiwan. Slalu tengok kt pasaraya tp dh tak tau nk masak, so baik tak payah beli. Nnti mbazir jer. Biasa kaum cina suka mkn sayur ni kan (bleh panggil sayur ke?) & biasa diaorg masak sup. Semlm aku gatal tgn beli lotus root ni sbb aku nk mkn. Nsib baik aku teringat ex-officemate aku sulu, evon. Dia ni berbangsa cina, so dgn tak malunya aku terus call dia tnya resepi nk masak benda alah ni. Aku tak nk buat sup, aku nk yg bgoreng; stir fry. So here we are, resepi lotus root goreng bsama daging. Aku jamin sedap. Kt bawah tu plak aku tepek resepi lotus root goreng gak tp yg plain takde daging or ayam. Klau tak nk taruk daging, bleh taruk ayam. Udang pn sedap...lain kali bleh cuba resepi sup plak. Nk buat kerepek pn bleh.
