Servings 2


  • 1 Lotus Root 2 Feet Long
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tbsp rice flour or all purpose flour
  • salt and pepper
  • oil to fry


  • Peel the reddish-brown exterior of the lotus root and slice them paper thin (if possible). Wash them in cold running water and soak it in water- vinegar solution and little salt. I left them for 30 minutes. Remove and drain the excess water. Pat dry them with paper towels. Dust them with flour.
  • Heat oil to 350’F and once they get heated up, fry them in batches. Drain the excess oil in a paper towel and sprinkle cummin powder, garam masala, salt and pepper. Serve hot with ketchup and mayonnoise.
