    Expert Tips

    1. You can take your time but make sure that the lotus stems are sliced really thin, or they might not become very crispy.
    2. Do not dry out the slices after rinsing them, we want some moisture to mix the cornflour with.
    3. Do not add the fried lotus stems in a cold sauce. Let the sauce heat up, otherwise it wouldn't coat the stems.
